Police hunts for missing iPhone, clues
The Delhi Police still haven't been able to get their hands on crucial evidence, in the form of four mobile phones, and are yet to gain access to Geetika Sharma's Facebook account despite a week of questioning of Gopal Kanda, sources said on Saturday.
While the mobile phones, one of which is an iPhone which belonged to the slain airhostess herself, are a key means to deciphering her soured relationship with Kanda and can help prove that he abetted her suicide.
"We have reason to believe that most of the communication between the two happened through these mobile phones. Three of them were used by Kanda while the iPhone, which is supposed to contain crucial text messages, had been 'assigned' to her by MDLR after his nod," said an officer.The iPhone, sources claimed, had been 'officially' withdrawn from Geetika at the behest of Kanda after he secretly scanned through it in Geetika's absence and came across pictures she had clicked with 'two other men'.
A withdrawal receipt, in this regard, has been recovered by police from Kanda's MDLR office in Gurgaon; the phone, however, is yet to be traced. Strangely, even after her family publicly declared that her Facebook account had been mysteriously deactivated, the police said they were in the process of 'getting its password cracked' with the help of cyber experts.
Meanwhile, sources said they had stumbled upon an intelligence report detailing the number of properties owned by Kanda.
"A 1,125 square yard plot in Gurgaon, an office located in the Old Judicial Complex, a piece of land in Shikhohabad village, 7,574 sqmt land in Gurgaon's sector 14 purchased in 2007 by MDLR and several other pieces of land located in the Ramnagar Village in his constituency of Sirsa, figure in the list of properties," said an officer.
Prepared in 2007, the said dossier had been handed-over to the Internal Security division of the MHA by its intelligence wing.
