Geetika Sharma case: Police to grill starlet and MDLR employee Nupur Mehta

New Delhi: Delhi Police is likely to question Bollywood starlet Nupur Mehta in the Geetika Sharma suicide case. Nupur Mehta was a vice president in the now defunct MDLR Airlines, the aviation company floated by former Haryana minister Gopal Goyal Kanda, key accused in the Geetika suicide case.

Another MDLR official Shivroop's role in sending forged emails to Emirates Airlines when Geetika was working in Dubai is also being investigated.

According to the police say draft of the mail was sent from MDLR employee Aruna Chadha's mail id to Shivroop before the mail was sent to Emirates from a fake id following which Geetika was terminated from her airhostess job at the airlines.

Meanwhile, Kanda's wife Saras broke her silence and claimed that her husband had no role to play in Geetika's death. "My husband is innocent and there is a conspiracy against him," said Saras.

The court had on Tuesday come down heavily on Delhi Police for failing to keep details of Geetika's post mortem report confidential. A defensive police hastily went public saying they had enough evidence and have added charges of criminal conspiracy and I-T Act.

Delhi Police had also claimed that Aruna Chaddha had been trying to 'mislead' the investigation into the case by misreporting her date of joining Kanda's company.

Aruna during the probe had said that she had joined Kanda's company just a month before Geetika had. However, the appointment letter shows that Aruna had joined in 2004.

Delhi Police have also managed to trace the third hard disk following raids conducted on Monday and Sunday.

Both Kanda and Aruna have been accused of abetting Geetika's suicide. Aruna, who had been remanded on August 16 to 14-day judicial custody, was produced before the court which sent her back to judicial custody for a day till Tuesday.

Kanda was sent to seven-day police custody on August 18 following his surrender and subsequent arrest.
