48-year-old Kanda is accused of abetting the suicide of Geetika Sharma, an air hostess employed with his aviation company MDLR (Murali Dhar Lakhpat Rai) Airlines Company.

Geetika, working with Kanda's MDLR Airlines, was found dead on August 5, 2012 at her Ashok Vihar residence in northwest Delhi.

In her suicide note, 23-year-old Geetika blamed Kanda and his employee Aruna Chaddha and said she was ending her life due to ‘harassment’ caused by the former Haryana minster and his close aide.

Aruna was arrested on August 8, 2012 while Kanda surrendered ten days later.

The High Court had granted bail to Aruna in February.

The two have been charged with abetment of suicide, criminal conspiracy, forgery and offences under the IT Act for hacking computers and sending offensive or false messages.

Both Kanda and Aruna have so far denied the allegations.
