New Delhi: In more trouble for Haryana`s former minister Gopal Goyal Kanda, a look out notice has been issued against him in connection with Geetika Sharma suicide case.

Police have formed six teams to hunt Kanda. All airports have been alerted to ensure that he does not fly out of the country.

The development comes after a Delhi court on Thursday dismissed the anticipatory bail plea of Kanda who was called by police for questioning over the suicide of former flight attendant Geetika Sharma here on August 5.

Additional Sessions Judge Rajnish Bhatnagar dismissed the bail plea of Kanda, who failed to appear before police for questioning Wednesday.

The court said that Kanda`s anticipatory bail application was without merit.

A court here also sent the now-defunct MDLR Airlines` official Aruna Chaddha to two days` police custody in connection with the case. She was arrested on Wednesday.

Additional Chief Metropolitan Magistrate Devender Kumar Jangala allowed police to quiz Chaddha till Aug 11.

Kanda cannot approach the High Court before Monday as today is a court holiday and then comes the weekend. Police has not been able to question the former Haryana minister till now.

Fearing arrest, Kanda had moved a District and Sessions Court in Rohini court complex in Delhi yesterday seeking anticipatory bail after his aide Aruna Chadha was arrested by the police.

Geetika Sharma (23), a former air hostess with Kanda`s now defunct MDLR Airlines, alleged in her suicide note on Sunday that she was ending her life due to harassment by Kanda and MDLR official Aruna Chaddha.

Geetika was found hanging in her flat in north-west Delhi on August 5.

Kanda owned the MDLR Airlines where Sharma worked as a flight attendant. After the airlines ceased to function in 2009, she was given a job in another company owned by Kanda. She later quit the company.

According to Sharma`s brother, Gaurav, his sister was being constantly mentally harassed by Kanda and Chaddha.
