New Delhi: Hours after his anticipatory bail plea was rejected by the Delhi High Court, ex-Haryana minister Gopal Kanda, accused in Geetika Sharma suicide case, finally, may surrender before police on Friday night, his brother Govind Kanda said to Zee News.

Kanda’s brother, who was detained by the police, claimed that Kanda would arrive shortly at Ashok Vihar police station to surrender.

Zee News visuals showed supporters of Gopal Kanda, thronging outside Ashok Vihar police station, shouting pro-Kanda slogans.

Defending Gopal Kanda, his brother Govind also blamed Delhi Police for not cooperating with Kanda. He said that Kanda was a well mannered and respected person and was never given enough time by Delhi Police.

Earlier, Delhi Police Commissioner also said on Twitter, that Kanda will be in police custody soon.

“V will get Kanda soon enough Our best boys r on d job”, tweeted Delhi Police.

Earlier in the day, the anticipatory bail plea of Kanda was dismissed by the Delhi high court.

Justice P K Bhasin, in his order, said that the accused "appears to be sitting comfortably somewhere without any apprehension of his arrest by the police" and his brother Govind Kumar has filed the anticipatory bail application on his behalf without any proper authorization.

Kanda has been evading police, ever since Geetika Sharma was found hanging in her flat in north west Delhi on August 5.

Geetika Sharma (23) was a former air hostess with Kanda`s now defunct MDLR airlines and had alleged in her suicide note that she was committing suicide due to harassment by Kanda and MDLR official Aruna Chaddha.

Both Kanda and Chaddha had denied the allegations.

Kanda, an Independent MLA who held Home, Urban Bodies and Industry and Commerce portfolios, resigned the following day.
