Gopal Kanda, wanted in connection with former flight attendant Geetika Sharma's suicide, moved the Delhi High Court for anticipatory bail today.

Absconding former Haryana minister Gopal Goyal Kanda, wanted in connection with the suicide of former flight attendant Geetika Sharma, today moved the Delhi High Court seeking anticipatory bail.

The matter will come up for hearing Tuesday.

On Aug 9, Kanda's anticipatory bail plea was dismissed by a sessions court that said allegations against him were grave and serious in nature and that his application was without merit.

Kanda, who owned MDLR Airlines where the 23-year-old Geetika was earlier employed, was booked for abetment of suicide and criminal intimidation.

Kanda, former minister of state for home in Haryana, has been on the run since.

Geetika hanged herself in her north Delhi's Ashok Vihar house on Aug 5 and left behind a suicide note, blaming Kanda for her extreme step. Her autopsy report Friday confirmed there was no foul play.
