Geetika suicide: Kanda, Chaddha charge-sheeted
NEW DELHI: Delhi Police on Saturday filed a charge sheet against former Haryana minister Gopal Kanda and his employee Aruna Chaddha in the Geetika Sharma suicide case.
The city police accused both of them of conspiring to intimidate the victim for taking the extreme step. Kanda and Chaddha were also charge-sheeted for destruction of evidence and for king and destroying the hard disks of computers of Kanda’s now defunct airlines MDLR with which Geetika worked.
The 1020-page charge sheet, which named 65 prosecution witnesses, was filed under various provisions of the Indian Penal Code and Information Technology Act.
The charge sheet accused the duo of committing offences under section 306 (abetment of suicide), 120 B (criminal conspiracy), 506 (criminal intimidation), 201 (destruction of evidence), 467 (forgery of valuable security), 468 (forgery with intention to cheat), 469 (forgery with intention to harm reputation) and 471 (using forged documents as genuine) of the Indian Penal Code.
Additional Chief Metropolitan Magistrate D K Jangala took cognisance of the charge sheet and fixed October 9 as the date for scrutiny of the documents.
In her suicide note, Geetika had also said Kanda and one of the MDLR employees, Chaddha, were harassing her to rejoin the firm after she left the job.
