The Delhi high court on Monday issued notice to police on a plea of former air hostess Geetika Sharma's brother seeking cancellation of bail to former Haryana minister Gopal Goyal Kanda, who was in jail for the past 18 months after being accused of abetting her suicide.

Justice VP Vaish sought Delhi police's reply by April 17.

Approaching the high court, Sharma's brother contended that Kanda was an influential person and while on bail, would try to tamper with evidence and influence the witnesses.

Asking the court to cancel the bail given to Kanda, he said that the trial court had not taken into consideration all the aspects while granting him bail.

The trial court on March 4 allowed the bail application of Kanda while observing that he was in judicial custody since August 2012.

The high court had earlier dropped the charge of sexual exploitation against him.

Kanda and his aide Aruna Chadha are accused of abetting the suicide of a 23-year-old former air hostess who left behind a note accusing the duo of harassing her.

Chadha and Kanda have been charged with abetting suicide, criminal conspiracy, forgery and hacking computers and sending offensive or false messages.

The Delhi high court on February 10 had granted regular bail to Chadha.
