Haryana Minister Gopal Kanda resigned late on Sunday soon after he was booked for abetment to suicide by Delhi police after a former employee of his now defunct airline MDLR allegedly took her life accusing him of harassing her.

Former air hostess Geetika Sharma (23), who quit Kanda’s company recently, allegedly took the extreme step at her Ashok Vihar residence in north-west Delhi, apparently depressed over continuing mental harassment allegedly by Kanda and which was mentioned in her suicide note.

Kanda (46), an independent MLA from Sirsa, is the MoS for Home Affairs, Urban Bodies and Industry and Commerce. In her suicide note, Geetika had claimed that Kanda was torturing her mentally after she left her job and was pressuring her to rejoin his firm.
