New Delhi: A Delhi court on Thursday issued non-bailable warrant (NBW) against ex-Haryana Minister Gopal Goyal Kanda, an accused in the Geetika Sharma suicide case.

Metropolitan Magistrate DK Jangala directed that the NBW be issued against Kanda for August 24.

The court gave the direction after the Delhi Police told it that Kanda is yet to be arrested.

The police said despite their best of efforts, they have been unable to arrest Kanda, the order on whose anticipatory bail plea has been reserved by the Delhi High Court.

Kanda's aide and co-accused Aruna Chaddha, meanwhile, was sent today by the court to judicial custody for 14 days. She was arrested on August 8 after she was called by the police questioning.

The trial court had rejected Kanda's plea for anticipatory bail on August 9. Both Kanda and Chaddha have been accused of abetting Geetika's suicide.

23-year-old Geetika was found hanging in her flat in North West Delhi on August 5.

In a suicide note found at her residence, she had said she was ending her life due to harassment by Kanda and MDLR official Aruna Chaddha.
