New Delhi: A Delhi court on Thursday dismissed the bail plea of former Haryana minister Gopal Kanda, an accused in former air hostess Geetika Sharma suicide case.

District and Additional Sessions Judge S K Sarvaria refused to grant bail to Kanda, who had moved the application for bail plea on Wednesday.

Earlier, his anticipatory bail plea was rejected by the trial court and Delhi HC, following which he surrendered before police

The sitting Haryana MLA was arrested on August 18 after he had surrendered before the police, 13 days after Geetika was found dead in her Ashok Vihar house in North West Delhi.

In her August 4 suicide note, 23-year-old Geetika said she was ending her life due to "harassment" by Kanda and Chaddha. Both Kanda and Chaddha have been accused of abetting Geetika`s suicide.

However, Kanda has been reiterating before the court that no case of abeting suicide is made out against him and that Geetika was "hypersensitive" and the extreme act on her part was that of a "confused and frustrated individual".
