Airhostess suicide: Police seek removal of adverse remarks

Seeking expunction of adverse remarks by trial court against it in the former airhostess suicide case, the Delhi police on Friday told the High Court that
they amounted to ‘destroying the prosecution case before it begins.’

Appearing before Justice G P Mittal, Additional Solicitor General Siddharth Luthra read out certain remarks from the trial court’s order on framing of charges against former Haryana minister Gopal Kanda and his employee Aruna Chadha.

‘The trial court’s remarks that the investigating agency has chosen not to unearth further circumstantial or other credible evidence on this aspect to reach the
truth (with regard to the sexual exploitation of the victim) is like destroying the case of the prosecution before it begins.

‘What more evidence can we bring to support our case,’ he said while pointing to the statement of witnesses collected and the documentary evidence gathered by the police. Luthra was arguing for a plea moved by police objecting to the trial court’s remark dubbing the probe as ‘tainted and stinking’.
