REPRESENTATION GIVEN BY BJP DELEGATION LED BY SHRI VIJENDER GUPTA MEET TODAY COMMISSIONER OF DELHI POLICE AT PHQ ON GEETIKA GOPAL KANDA CASE.....
16th August, 2012
Dear Sh.Neeraj Kumar,
It has been a matter of immense pain that ten days after former flight attendant Geetika Sharma killed herself, Delhi Police is yet to trace the key accused, former Haryana Minister Mr. Gopal Kanda who happens to be a very powerful politician.
The entire case has cast serious aspersions on the intentions and credibility of the Delhi police in nailing down the accused. It is shocking that even after gathering a mountain of evidences against Mr. Kanda he was allowed to flee. Such a situation could have been avoided if timely action was taken by the authorities. The suicide note clearly pointed to harassment and provocation by the accused, yet he was not taken into police custody immediately. Instead he was seen appearing on TV interviews and roaming free in the state capital. If the absconder is not apprehended soon there is serious danger of him tampering with the evidence and as a result jeopardizing the entire investigation.
This incident has led to a serious trust deficit between the civilian population and the criminal prosecution system of the country. Delhi BJP demands that the guilty must be brought to book without any further delay and the bereaved family of the victim is given justice.
Sh. Neeraj Kumar
Commissioner, Delhi Police
Police Headquarter, ITO
