A Delhi court Tuesday sent Haryana's former minister Gopal Goyal Kanda, accused of abetting the suicide of his employee and former flight attendant Geetika Sharma, to jail after the end of his interrogation in police custody.
Metropolitan Magistrate Devender Kumar Jangala sent Kanda to 14 days' judicial custody.
The court ordered that the accused would be provided a separate vehicle for travelling between the court and jail due to security reasons.
The former minister was arrested Aug 18. He remained in police custody for 10 days.
Geetika, 23, who earlier worked in Kanda's now-defunct MDLR Airlines, died on the night of Aug 4-5 at her house in Delhi's Ashok Vihar area.
Her two suicide notes named Kanda and his employee Aruna Chaddha for harassing her and driving her to suicide. Both have denied the allegations. Chaddha is in judicial custody.
After Kanda's airlines ceased to function in 2009, Geetika was given another assignment in the group owned by him.
Kanda, who was forced to resign as minister of state for home and urban local bodies in Haryana in the face of public outcry over Geetika's suicide, was booked for abetment to suicide by Delhi Police.
