Singh, who had expressed his desire to turn approver in the case, is absconding since he was granted bail and the court has dropped the proceeding to make him approver in the case of 23-year-old air hostess' suicide.
Special Public Prosecutor (SPP) Rajiv Mohan apprised District and Sessions Judge S K Sarvaria of the police plan to file the supplementary charge sheet as he faced objection from the defence counsel to beginning his arguments on framing of charges against the two chargesheeted accused, Kanda and his another aide Aruna Chadha.
The defence counsel objected to opening of argument on framing of charges saying the police is yet to file the supplementary charge sheet and was yet to submit the Central Forensic Science Laboratory (CFSL) report in the case.
Following the prosecutor's submission, the court asked police to file the charge sheet in a week and also the CFSL report before it to ensure that the arguments on framing of charges begins from next date of hearing on January 24.
Kanda and Chadha stand accused of abetting Geetika's the suicide. Both of them are presently in judicial custody. Kanda has been denied bail by the Delhi High Court while Chadha had withdrawn her bail application.
Judge Sarvaria, meanwhile, issued production warrant against Kanda, as he had not been produced in the court from judicial custody due to his bad health.
"Accused Chadha is produced from the judicial custody, accused Kanda is not produced, so production warrant is issued to him for the next date of hearing in the case.”
Former air hostess Geetika was found dead on August 5, last year, at her Ashok Vihar residence in North West Delhi. In her August 4 suicide note, Geetika had said she was ending her life due to "harassment" by Kanda and Chadha.
The police had arrested Chanshivroop, an assistant manager in Kanda's MDLR, allegedly because he was the person who had gone to Dubai where Geetika was working with Emirates Airlines and told its officials that she had secured a job with MDLR on the basis of fake and forged documents.
Later, Chanshivroop had been released on bail and had also recorded his statement as a witness before a magisterial court after he expressed his wish to become an approver.
On December 5, 2012, the ACMM had tendered "conditional pardon" to Chanshivroop "on the condition that he shall make a full and true disclosure of whole of the circumstances within his knowledge related to the offence and relating to all the accused persons regarding commission of the offence."
