Former MDLR Airlines staffer commits suicide; Delhi Police register case against Haryana minister
A 23-year-old ex-director of MDLR airlines committed suicide at her northwest Delhi home late on Sunday night. The deceased has been identified as Geetika Sharma who lived in Ashok Vihar area.
The police have recovered a suicide note from the spot in which the ex-MDLR employee has blamed Haryana minister of state, Gopal Kanda, for allegedly harassing her mentally.
Senior officers and family members confirmed this and the Delhi Police have registered a case of abetment to suicide against Kanda under section 306 of IPC.
Geetika quickly rose up to the post of director in the company before quitting the job last month.
In her suicide note, Geetika had claimed that Kanda was mentally torturing her after she left the job in his company. She also wrote that he was pressurizing her to join his firm again.
"They have broken my trust. They have cheated me. Due to this, I am committing suicide," said the suicide note.
Geetika's brother Gaurav alleged that Kanda often visited their home after her sister joined MDLR Airlines, which he owned, as an air hostess around one and a half years back.
He further said, "When the airline's operation was suspended, Kanda offered her another job. She refused that offer and joined Emirates in Dubai. Kanda then wrote a letter to Emirates claimimg that Geetika was a woman of bad character. This led to her termination from the airline. Kanda also told her that she will have to work only in his company and nowhere else."
"I have believed these people, but they are not trustworthy. She has said that whatever has happened with her, it shouldn't happen with anyone else. To save herself from these circumstances, she was taking this step," her brother said quoting the suicide note.
"After my sister quit the job, Kanda came home again and persuaded her to rejoin. When she did not agree, he offered her a job in another company owned by him called Supersonic in Gurgaon," Gaurav alleged.
In the early hours of Sunday police received a call regarding the incident and rushed to the spot.
"She was found hanging from the ceiling. We rushed her to the hospital where she was declared brought dead. Her body was sent for post-mortem. We will be able to ascertain further details after the autopsy report arrives," said a senior police officer.
Meanwhile, senior cops, including DCP northwest P Karunakaran, reached the spot and began investigations.
The cops are analyzing the call records of the deceased and have seized her mobile phone along with her personal diary.
The suicide note is being examined too and the seizures will be examined by the forensic experts.
