Gopal Goyal Kanda forced Geetika Sharma back from UAE to sexually exploit her: Cops

Geetika Kanda

This complaint was handed over by Chanshivroop to the Head of Investigation in Emirates Airlines and ultimately Geetika resigned from there citing domestic issues.

"In this manner, Kanda showed his influence and authority and made Geetika realise that she could not work anywhere else with dignity. This realization was unbearable and made Geetika highly vulnerable to further exploitation", said the chargesheet.

Although Kanda and Chadha succeeded in getting Geetika to resign from Emirates Airlines and return to India, they could not get her to join MDLR Airlines and once again Chanshivroop was roped in by them and he created fake e-mali IDs and sent forged e-mail to Geetika about the alleged extradition proceedings against her in Dubai, the chargesheet said.

The police also said Chanshivroop was arrested in the case on October 30, 2012 and got bail when his father Harminder Singh stood surety for him. The next day he, on his own will, filed an application for grant of pardon and his son turning an approver.

Following this, his statement was recorded by a magisterial court and hearing on his application for pardon was pending but he never turned up in the court and probe showed he had fled to the US on November 28, 2012.

The police also said in the chargesheet that even as Chanshivroop's father feigned ignorance in the court about his whereabouts, probe showed they both had stayed at a hotel in Paharganj the night before Chanshivroop left India and their movements were recorded in the CCTV installed there.

"Call detail records of Harminder Singh and other family members show they were in constant touch with one Vishnu Tantiya, a relative/close aide of Kanda and Head of purchase/ sale department of MDLR group," it said.

The police also said while the MDLR Airlines was in the process of reviving flight operations in 2010, it had given a list of its employees for Airport Entry Passes which also had the name of Geetika Sharma even though she had left the company.
