New Delhi: The Delhi High Court today issued notice to police on a plea of Haryana’s former minister Gopal Goyal Kanda’s employee Aruna Chaddha against the framing of fresh charge of abetment of rape against her in the Geetika suicide case.
Justice G.P. Mittal also summoned trial court records, thereby suspending the proceedings before the trial judge till May 30.
The trial court had framed charges of abetting rape and suicide of Geetika against Chaddha.
Chaddha and Kanda have been charged with rape, abetment of rape, abetment of suicide, criminal conspiracy, forgery under the Indian Penal Code and Information Technology Act for hacking computers and sending offensive or false messages.
Geetika, 23, a former flight attendant in Kanda’s now-defunct MDLR Airlines, was found hanging from the ceiling of a room at her Ashok Vihar house in north Delhi Aug 5 last year.
She left behind two suicide notes blaming Kanda and Chaddha for ruining her life. Both are now in judicial custody and have denied any involvement in the suicide.
