In the latest development in the sensational Geetika Sharma suicide case,  the team probing the incident is believed to have questioned Ankita Singh, a close aide of key accused Gopal Goyal Kanda, on Monday.

However, senior police officials refused to answer queries related to the case and remained tight-lipped on the issue of Ankita’s interrogation.

In fact, Geetika’s purported suicide note had mentioned Ankita, who is a director of Mint casino in Goa run by Kanda’s MDLR Group.

“He (Kanda) has an illegal relationship with a woman named Ankita and has also a girl child  with her,” it said.

Incidentally, Ankita had claimed in a statement given to the Goa Police in 2009 that she was Kanda’s wife and the couple had a girl child.

Sources said that Ankita allegedly knew several secrets related to Kanda. And she had in fact come down from Singapore and is reportedly willing to cooperate with the ongoing probe.

Actually, her name surfaced after it emerged that Ankita allegedly gatecrashed Geetika’s flat in Panaji and threatened her over her intimacy with Kanda.

Geetika’s family had alleged that Ankita used to call them and ask them to force Geetika to rejoin the MDLR airlines owned by Kanda.

Sources further said that police might interrogate another employee of the now defunct MDLR airlines, Nupur Mehta.

Ankita, like Nupur Mehta, has Bollywood connections. She reportedly acted in the Aamir Khan-starrer, Fanaa, and was featured in one of the songs as the lead actress’ friend, police sources said.

Geetika (23) was found hanging at her Ashok Vihar house on August 4 morning, following alleged mental harassment from Kanda and his close associate and MDLR employee Aruna Chaddha.
