HC seeks cops response on Aruna Chaddah’s bail plea

On Friday, the Delhi high court sought the response of city police on the bail plea of former Haryana minister Gopal Kanda’s employee Aruna Chaddah, who was arrested for allegedly abetting suicide of air hostess Geetika Sharma.

Issuing notice to Delhi Police, Justice Pratibha Rani sought its reply by 3 December.

Chaddah, 40, moved the high court on Thursday challenging the sessions court’s 16 October order denying her bail. Chaddah, who along with Kanda is accused of abetting Geetika’s suicide, had sought bail on the ground that the police has already filed its charge sheet in the case and the probe against her is complete. She had also sought bail, saying that she is a single parent and has a minor daughter and aged parents to look after.

Geetika, 23, was found dead at her Ashok Vihar residence in north-west Delhi on 5 August. In her suicide note (written on 4 August), she had said she was ending her life due to ‘harassment’ by Kanda and Chaddah, a charge denied by them. Kanda was arrested on 18 August after he had surrendered before police.
