Court extends interim bail of Govind Kanda

A Delhi court on Wednesday extended till 31 October the interim bail of Govind Kanda, brother of former Haryana minister Gopal Goyal Kanda and an accused in the Geetika Sharma suicide, for ignoring warrants in a 14-year-old dud cheque matter.

District Judge H S Sharma extended Govind Kanda’s interim bail that was granted on 10 September on a personal bond of Rs 10,000 and a surety of the same amount.

On the direction of a court, Gopal Kanda and his brother Govind, were declared proclaimed offenders for ignoring the warrants in the cheque-bounce case, which they settled out of court.

Police registered a case against the two brothers for avoiding the court’s warrants.

Earlier directing the registration of case against the Kanda brothers, another court said that evading court summons and warrants was different from cheque-bounce case and acquittal in one case did not absolve anyone of the second offence.

Both the brothers faced summons and then warrants by the Delhi court over the 1998 case when a Rs.4 lakh cheque issued by Gopal Kanda had bounced. But the two failed to appear before it.

The court declared the brothers proclaimed offenders for not heeding summons.
