Former Haryana minister Gopal Goyal Kanda on Thursday told Delhi Police he had no connection with ex-air hostess Geetika Sharma for the last 45 days before she committed suicide.

Kanda, who had floated MDLR Airlines, is the prime accused in the Geetika Sharma suicide case.

The Delhi Police on Thursday said Sharma had left two suicide notes before committing suicide on August 5.

She wrote both the letters on the same day, police sources said.

According to reports, the police have also got in touch with one Ankita whom Geetika had named in her suicide note.

The police said Ankita is currently out of India and will be questioned soon in connection to the case.

The Delhi Police have registered fresh charges against Kanda Section 66-A of Information Technology Act.

The charges were slapped against him for allegedly sending false electronic messages that lead to the harassment of Geetika.

"We have invoked this section as the accused through electronic message, forged details and send it," Special Commissioner Dharmendra Kumar told reporters.

Pertinently, the police have already charged Kanda with Criminal Intimidation (506), Abetment to Suicide (306) and Criminal Conspiracy (120-B).

According to reports, the police are also investigating the role of a MDLR employee Shivroop in sending forged emails to Emirates Airlines.

Geetika, who left Kanda´s company and joined Emirates, was working in Dubai at that time.

Shivroop had sent the mail from a fake id to the Emirates after which Geetika´s job was terminated.

The mail was reportedly first sent from MDLR employee Aruna Chaddha´s mail id to Shivroop.

A Delhi court on Tuesday rejected Delhi Police´s plea to get the two-day police custody of Aruna Chaddha.

Aruna, who was arrested on August 8, was sent to 14-day judicial custody on August 16.

A Delhi court on August 18 remanded Kanda to seven-day police custody.
