A Delhi court on Tuesday extended the judicial custody of former Haryana minister Gopal Goyal Kanda and his employee Aruna Chaddha till Oct 12.

The duo is accused of abetting the suicide of former flight attendant Geetika Sharma.

While extending their custody, Additional Chief Metropolitan Magistrate DK. Jangala listed the matter for scrutiny of the charge-sheet till Oct 12.  Police filed the charge-sheet on Oct 6. The court order came after Kanda's counsel said that the scrutiny of the charge-sheet could not be done due to paucity of time.

Chaddha is a former official of Kanda's now-defunct MDLR Airlines where Geetika had worked.

Kanda was forced to resign as minister of state for home and urban local bodies in Haryana following Geetika's suicide. He was arrested on Aug 18.

Geetika, 23, died on Aug 5 at her house in Delhi's Ashok Vihar area. Her two suicide notes named Kanda and Chaddha for harassing her and driving her to suicide. Both Kanda and Chaddha have denied the allegations. After Kanda's airlines ceased to function in 2009, Geetika was given another assignment in the group owned by him.
