The Rohini court on Thursday issued a Non-bailable Warrant (NBW) against former Haryana minister Gopal Kanda, who is accused of abetting the suicide of former airhostess Geetika Sharma.
The court has asked the police to execute the arrest warrant by August 24.
Earlier in the day police conducted fresh raids at Kanda's residence, even as he evaded them for another day.
The concerned investigators, who have so far conducted searches and raids in around 50 places and questioned over 25 people, also went to Kanda's residence in Sirsa late night and conducted raids. However, the former minister could not be traced.
Kanda, who was last seen coming out of his Gurgaon residence on August 8, was served with a notice to join investigations last Wednesday. He had gone underground with police declaring him an 'absconder', while MDLR Airlines executive and Kanda's employee Aruna Chaddha was arrested.
Kanda and Chaddha were named in the suicide note of Geetika, who took her life on August five, alleging that they had harassed her and ruined her life.
Kanda had moved a local court and then Delhi High Court seeking anticipatory bail.
While local court denied him bail, the high court has reserved the order.
Chaddha was arrested on August 8 after being called in for questioning by the police, while Kanda ignored police summons to him to appear before them after rejection of his request for more time made through his counsel.
