Delhi cops seek more time to examine Kanda aide’s statement

The Delhi Police on Tuesday sought two more days from a court here to examine the statement of former Haryana minister Gopal Kanda's aide Chanshivroop to see if he could be made an approver in the Geetika Sharma suicide case.

Appearing before a local court, police said it needed two days more to examine accused Chanshivroop's statement, recorded before a magistrate after he wanted to to become an approver in the case. Kanda too is an accused in the case.

The Delhi Police had earlier said Chanshivroop, an assistant manager in MDLR, was the person who had gone to Dubai where Geetika was working with Emirates Airlines and told its officials that she had secured a job with MDLR on the basis of fake and forged documents. The prosecution had also alleged that he had sent fake emails to Geetika informing her about extradition proceedings against her in Dubai to pressurise her to join back MDLR.

On November 7, Chanshivroop gave his statement under the provisions for recording of confessions and statements a day after he was allowed to appear before a magisterial court for the same.
