Model-turned-starlet Nupur Mehta, who shot to limelight in connection with the match and spot-fixing allegations made by a British newspaper last year, is back in news! This time too, for all the wrong reasons. She is likely to be questioned by the Delhi Police in the Geetika Sharma suicide case.
Nupur Mehta was a vice president in the now defunct MDLR Airlines, the aviation company floated by former Haryana minister Gopal Kanda, who is the key accused in the Geetika suicide case.
Mehta was virtually unknown till a few months back when her face was splashed across news channels and she even trended on Twitter.
