Ankita Singh, one of the key suspects in the Geetika Sharma suicide case, has told Delhi Police that she will land in New Delhi from Singapore on Friday, sources claimed.

Police said Ankita is in touch with them over telephone from Singapore where she went on a business trip.

The police also said that they will not seek further custody of prime accused Gopal Goyal Kanda. "We have tied up most of the loose ends in the investigation and will seek to prove that Kanda abetted Geetika's suicide mainly on the basis of the two emails sent at his behest through his employee Shiv Roop and aimed at defaming her," said an officer. The emails were sent to Emirates, Geetika's employers, to malign her professional image, police had submitted before a court.

Kanda is currently under remand and will be produced in court on Tuesday. Investigators said they would not seek further custody of the ex-Haryana minister, one of whose mobile phones - three of which were missing - had been recovered at his instance on Monday.

While the Delhi Police are expected to whisk Ankita away as soon as she lands at the Indira Gandhi International Airport on Friday morning, questioning two of Geetika's friends - a Merchant Navy captain and a dealer of luxury cars in Mumbai - have been ruled out.

The decision, police said, was based on the fact that Geetika's friendship with anyone else did not have any bearing on their case and would not contribute to proving the charge of abetment against Kanda. "They are not connected with the case and there's no point in questioning them," the officer added.
