Geetika, 23, a former flight attendant of MDLR Airlines, had in her suicide note accused Kanda and his employee Aruna Chaddha of harassing and forcing her take the extreme step.
She died on the night of Aug 4-5 at her house in Delhi's Ashok Vihar area. Kanda and Chaddha have denied the allegations.
