A Delhi court Thursday sent the now-defunct MDLR Airlines' official Aruna Chaddha to two days' police custody in a case related to the suicide of former flight attendant Geetika Sharma here Aug 5. She was arrested the day before.

Additional Chief Metropolitan Magistrate Devender Kumar Jangala allowed police to quiz Chaddha till Aug 11.

Geetika left a suicide note blaming Chaddha for her extreme step. Sharma's ex-employer and Haryana's former minister Gopal Goyal Kanda was also named in the note, police said.

Charges of criminal intimidation have been slapped on Kanda, who was denied anticipatory bail by another Delhi court Thursday.

Sharma's body was found hanging in her house in north Delhi's Ashok Vihar Aug 5.

Kanda owned the MDLR Airlines where Sharma worked as a flight attendant. After the airlines ceased to function in 2009, she was given a job in another company owned by Kanda. She later quit the company.

According to Sharma's brother, Gaurav, his sister was being constantly mentally harassed by Kanda and Chaddha.
