Former Haryana minister Gopal Goyal Kanda, a key accused in the Geetika Sharma suicide case, was today remanded by a Delhi court to 7-day police custody. Additional Chief Metropolitan Magistrate D K Jangala remanded Kanda to police custody after the Delhi police said they need his sustained custodial interrogation to recover various documents and some hard drives which were missing from the MDLR Group's office and they also need to confront him with other documents which they have recovered till now.
During the hearing the police sought 14-days remand of Kanda saying that he is the sole source through whom they can collect all the documents and key evidence relating to the case. Kanda, who was arrested in the wee hours today after being on the run for the past 10 days, was produced in the court room which was packed to capacity.
Many of his supporters were stopped from entering the court with police personnel bolting the door from inside. Senior advocate Ramesh Gupta, appearing for Kanda, vehemently opposed the police' plea for 14-days custody saying that his client was not an absconder as termed by the police and he himself had surrendered in a police station. He said that no purpose will be served by keeping his client in police custody as the cops have already searched the premises and his office.
