Aruna Chadha, facing prosecution along with former Haryana minister Gopal Kanda in former air hostess Geetika Sharma suicide case, was on Monday again refused bail by a Delhi court on the ground that she might tamper with the evidence.

Additional district and sessions judge SK Sarvaria dismissed the bail plea of 40-year-old Chadha, who along with Kanda, is accused of abetting Geetika's suicide.

This was the second time that her bail plea was rejected since her arrest on August 8.

Chadha had sought bail on the ground that as the police had filed the charge sheet in the case and the investigation against her is complete, she should be released on bail in the light of "change" in circumstances.

Her counsel argued that even if a prima facie case was made out against her, she, being a woman, was entitled to bail as she was also a single parent to a minor daughter and had aged parents to look after.
