New Delhi: The Delhi Police on Tuesday claimed that former Haryana minister Gopal Kanda, the prime accused in former airhostess Geetika Sharma suicide case, was so much fond of her that he had purchased a flat which was very close to her house located at Ashok Vihar in the city.

Earlier, it is said that Kanda had purchased this flat in the name of his daughter. However, during interrogation, Kanda said that he had purchased the flat as he wanted to open his company’s office in Delhi.

Kanda was remanded to 14-day judicial custody, when he was produced in Rohini court after his police custody expired on Tuesday.

Kanda had requested the court that he should be sent to jail in a separate vehicle.

His plea that he should be taken to the jail in a separate vehicle as he feared for his life was accepted by the court.

Kanda has been kept in a high security ward where a CCTV would keep a watch on him round the clock. On the very first day inside the jail he took his meal with great interest.

Even Kanda’s friend and actress Nupur Mehta, whose name had figured out during the investigation, did not even desist from accusing former Haryana Minister Kanda. It is said that she was a beneficiary while working with Gopal Kanda’s MDLR company and was given out of turn promotion and also offered a number of facilities.

How much Nupur was benefitted is evident from the fact that she started her career in year 2006 and within 3-years she rose to the position of Vice president of the MDMLR airlines.

In an interview given to an English News website, Nupur has admitted this fact.

Nupur further said that Kanda wanted to drag her (Nupur) into her net and was also offered a flat spread in an area of 500-square area in the city where she stayed till she left the company in year 2009.

Nupur further said that Kanda had exerted immense pressure on her for signing the papers of the flat but she declined to accept this

Startlet Nupur Mehta said that Kanda was fond of giving costly gifts to girls. He also offered property worth several crores to Ankita Singh.

Nupur has claimed that Aruna Chaddha who was working in the capacity as a Manager of the now defunct MDLR airlines used to supply beautiful girls to Gopal Kanda.

Aruna used to get contracts done by the girls and for which they were required to report to Gopal Kanda directly.

Taking advantage of this, Kanda got a chance to use Geetika at his will. Only a few days back, Nupur had called Gopal Kanda a playboy. Interestingly, Nupur came to the limelight in the month of April this year after her name allegedly figured in a cricket spot fixing case.
