Key accused in the Geetika Sharma suicide case, MDLR Chairman and ex-Haryana minister of state for Home Gopal Kanda will surrender in court on Monday, his brother Govind told mediapersons.

Gopal Kanda has been evading arrest ever since the news of Geetika Sharma came to light.

On Wednesday, the Delhi Police confirmed that Kanda was absconding, while his colleague and co-accused in the case, Aruna Chadha was arrested later that evening. She is now in a two-day judicial custody.

DCP P Karunakaran said, "We still haven't been able to find him. We are still carrying out searches in Haryana."

Meanwhile, on Friday, the Delhi Police questioned Kanda's relatives in connection with the case.

His anticipatory bail plea was rejected by a court on Thursday.

Also, the police raided Kanda's Sirsa residence for the second time on Thursday evening.

Meanwhile, the post-mortem reports of the victim, a former employee of the Kanda-owned MDLR group, has been handed over to the police. The National Commission for Women has taken cognizance of the incident. Its Chairperson Mamata Sharma met Geetika's family on Thursday.
