Having failed to arrest former Haryana minister Gopal Goyal Kanda in connection with the suicide of 23-year-old former airhostess Geetika Sharma, Delhi Police are now in the process of seizing his properties.

After getting a non-bailable warrant (NBW) issued against Kanda, Delhi Police will start attaching his properties, including the office of the MDLR airline and his house in Gurgaon.

"We will wait for a few days and then move the court to start the process of attaching his properties," a senior police officer said. After seizing the properties, police can initiate the process of declaring Kanda a 'proclaimed offender'.

On August 5, Sharma was found hanging at her Ashok Vihar house in Delhi. In her suicide note, she had accused Kanda and MDLR's human resource manager Aruna Chaddha of harassing her. Police had arrested Chaddha but Kanda is still evading arrest. Police continued their raids to arrest Kanda on Friday but failed to nab him. Delhi Police also wanted to confront Chaddha but couldn't as she was sent to judicial custody on Thursday.

Experts said that now Chaddha's statement will be treated as statement of co-accused, which cannot be considered as strong evidence.
