'Cops forcing me to lodge false case against Kanda'

New Delhi, Dec 7, 2012, PTI :

The father of an accused in air hostess Geetika Sharma suicide case has alleged in a court here that police are pressurising him to lodge a false case against prime accused and former Haryana minister Gopal Kanda and his family members.

The father of co-accused and Kanda’s aide Chanshivroop Singh, who is feared to have fled abroad after promising police to turn approver in the case and securing bail on this pretext, made this allegation of harassment by police in the court of additional chief metropolitan magistrate D K Jangala.

Singh alleged that Delhi police were pressurising him to file a complaint saying the relatives and brother of Gopal Kanda were threatening him and that the cops have forced him to sign some papers purportedly complaining about threat to his life from Kanda.

The court told Harminder Singh that he may take legal recourse against the alleged harassment by police. Police had arrested Chanshivroop Singh, an assistant manager in Kanda’s MDLR, allegedly because he was the person who had gone to Dubai where Geetika was working with Emirates Airlines and told its officials that she had secured a job with MDLR on the basis of fake and forged documents.

The prosecution had also alleged that he had sent fake e-mails to Geetika to pressurise her to join MDLR back.
