Controversial former Haryana Minister Gopal Kanda surrendered before police early on Saturday and was arrested, 13 days after the suicide of his former employee, who accused him of abetting her suicide.
Kanda who was "absconding" for the past 10 days after police served him a notice to appear before them to join investigations, surfaced at Bharat Nagar police station at 4 AM.
Before entering police station, he told reporters that he was joining investigations as directed by Delhi police. "Kanda has surrendered and we have arrested him," P Karunakaran, Deputy Commissioner of Police (North-West) told PTI.
His employee, Aruna Chaddha, a senior functionary with now defunct MDLR airlines, has already been arrested and is in judicial custody in connection with the suicide of Geetika Sharma, who allegedly took her life on August 5 in her Ashok Vihar residence.
In her suicide note, Geetika had alleged that Kanda and Chaddha were harassing her to rejoin the former minister's firm after she left the job. The anticipatory bail plea of Kanda had also been dismissed by the Delhi High Court earlier on Friday.
