NEW DELHI: Former Haryana minister Gopal Goyal Kanda, accused of abetting the suicide of Geetika Sharma, was proving to be a hard nut to crack as investigators zeroed in on the ‘seven questions’ to prove his guilt, police said on Sunday.
“Kanda is still misleading the interrogators as we are in need of some crucial evidence to prove him guilty of abetting Geetika's suicide. We are working on more than seven points,” an investigating officer, who did not want to reveal his identity, told IANS.
Kanda, former flight attendant Geetika's employer and the owner of the now-defunct MDLR Airlines, has been undergoing interrogation since his arrest early on Saturday but has refused to admit anything more than the fact that Geetika was his employee, sources said.
Not only was Kanda trying to mislead police, but he had remained stubbornly quiet on his whereabouts in the last 10 days since Geetika's suicide note blamed him and his employee Aruna Chaddha, now under judicial custody, they said. Police also failed to get a reply from him about the phone numbers he used for communicating with Geetika.
The investigators were also trying to ascertain the nature of some official documents which Geetika was supposed to sign. They documents could reveal the role that Kanda allegedly played in pushing Geetika to suicide.
