Geetika suicide: Kanda seeks bail, terms her "hypersensitive"

Former Haryana Minister Gopal Goyal Kanda, fearing arrest in ex-airhostess Geetika Sharma suicide case, today sought anticipatory bail from a Delhi court, saying she was a "hypersensitive girl" with "mixed emotions of love and hatred towards him" and she might have been "jilted".

Kanda's counsel K T S Tusli told Additional Sessions Judge Rajnish Bhatnagar that Geetika's suicide note shows she had "an element of jealousy and mixed emotions of love and hatred" towards his client. 

"Nowhere has Geetika said in her note that I instigated her to commit suicide" he argued before the court, which reserved its order for 4 pm. Tulsi referred to Geetika's August 4 suicide note, in which she had said she is "shattered from inside" as her trust is broken and that Kanda is a "fraud" and had purportedly held him and his aide Aruna Chaddah responsible for her death.

The suicide note shows she had a disturbed state of mind, argued Tulsi. Tulsi also referred to another letter written by Geetika on May 4 in which she had said, "Gopal is a fraud. He always keeps bad intentions towards girls. He is a man of no shame and guilt...he also has illicit relations with another girl and has a child from her..."

Tulsi said this shows Geetika was jealous of Kanda's relations with other girls and that the victim had an emotional attachment and wanted a relationship with him, for which he was not willing.

"She may be jilted," Tulsi said, referring to the victim, who worked earlier in a firm owned by Kanda.
