After the police declared former Haryana minister Gopal Kanda absconding, a team of Delhi Police reached Sirsa around 11.40pm on Wednesday night.

They performed a thorough search of Kanda’s MDLR office, and International School, of which Geetika Sharma was a trustee.

Kanda is an independent legislator from Sirsa and was given a cabinet birth in the Bhupinder Singh Hooda government in 2009.

A team of six members, headed by A Mohammad of Delhi Police, first reached the Rania Road based three acre house of Kanda, and then the adjoining MDK International school for around one hour.

The Delhi Police team,

however, refused to comment on any question asked by media persons.

In the morning, Kanda supporters staged a protest in the main market and tried to close down shops. Local shopkeepers, however, resisted and kept their establishments open throughout the day.

Kanda supporters, led by Bhagirath Gupta, who is also an advocate, took out a rally through Sira’s main market, and shouted slogans in favour of Kanda.

No members of Kanda’s family, including his younger brother Gobind Kanda, who manages Tara Baba Memorial Trust, however, were present during the protest.

In the wake of the protest, the district administration made elaborate security arrangements to avoid any untoward incident.
