New Delhi: The investigation into former MDLR airhostess Geetika Sharma's suicide appears to have hit a dead end as the police seems to have botched up the case again. It drew the court's ire for failing to keep details of the victim's post mortem report confidential.

The worst fears in the Geetika Sharma suicide case have come true. After struggling to arrest former Haryana minister Gopal Goyal Kanda amidst fears of losing evidence, the police appears to be messing up post his arrest too.

After failing to secure Aruna Chadha's custody for confrontation, the court has now ticked off the force further for not ensuring confidentiality of the post mortem report.

A defensive police hastily went public saying they had enough evidence and have added charges of criminal conspiracy and I-T Act.

Special Commissioner of Police, Law and Order Dharmendra Kumar said, "The electronic media has been used to defame and cheat them. This is the evidence we have so far."

Delhi Police haven't had any success in this case. Aruna herself joined the investigation and in spite of their best efforts Kanda remained absconded for 13 days before surrendering.

On Tuesday, too, police failed to follow the basic laws of judiciary and didn't attach necessary papers in its plea for Aruna's custody.

Mistakes like these have plagued the investigation from one and allowed Kanda to surrender on his own term. But Delhi Police claims that it was the pressure created by them that forced Kanda to join investigation.

So far Gopal Kanda has remained evasive in the custodial questioning. Inspite of a brave face put up by DelhiPpolice it is going to be an uphill task from here on to indict Kanda and his associate Aruna Chaddha for abetting Geetika's suicide.
