Court rejects Kanda's plea in cheque bounce case

A Delhi court on Friday refused bail to former Haryana minister Gopal Goyal Kanda in a case registered against him and his brother Govind for allegedly evading court proceedings in a 14-year-old cheque bounce case.

Gopal and Govind are named as accused in the case related to avoidance of court proceedings in a cheque bounce case which is heard at Patiala House Court here by metropolitan magistrate Jasjeet Kaur. Govind is now on interim bail till October 31.

Meanwhile, at a Rohini court where Gopal Kanda, along with his aide Aruna Chaddah, is accused in former air hostess 23-year-old Geetika Sharma’s suicide case, an additional chief metropolitan magistrate extended the judicial custody of the former minister till October 17.
Chaddah has also moved a bail plea before district and additional sessions judge S K Sarvaria who posted it for October 15.

During the hearing on Kanda’s bail plea, senior advocate Ramesh Gupta, said his client is in custody for over a month and has been a proclaimed offender as he did not appear before him in the cheque bounce case, but the fact is that the police had not properly served the summon to the former minister.
