Cops to seek extension of Kanda's remand

 Seeking extension of Gopal Goyal Kanda’s police custody, Delhi Police are likely to submit ‘tangible evidence’ in Rohini Court on Saturday, claiming that Geetika Sharma committed suicide after being exploited and harassed by the former Haryana minister.


 According to sources, police have collected fresh evidence against Kanda during his interrogation while in remand,  which ended on Friday.


It has revealed that Geetika wanted to end all relations with Kanda and MDLR Group, but the ex-minister was adamant on retaining her in the company.


The 23-year-old is said to have become a victim of the false promises and threats.
“After questioning Kanda, the case has become almost clear. It is evident that exploitation built pressure on Geetika. She wanted to leave the company, but Kanda was pressurising her against it,” a senior police official added.


Kanda, chairman and managing director of MDLR Group, will be produced before Rohini Court on Saturday where Delhi Police will demand an extension of his remand.
“We will keep all the evidences in the court. We are sure that we will get permission for at least three to four days of his remand,” said P Karunakaran, deputy commissioner of police (north-west).


Meanwhile, investigators have prepared a questionnaire for one of Kanda’s MDLR Group employees, Ankita Singh — who is expected to join the investigation on Sunday. The questionnaire has been prepared to grill Ankita for getting information on her relations with Geetika and Kanda, and on whether there was any pressure built by Kanda on her too.
