Former Haryana minister Gopal Goyal Kanda, accused of abetting the suicide of a former air hostess, Monday requested a court here to grant him bail.

Kanda's counsel Kapil Sankhla told Additional Sessions Judge Yashwant Kumar that the former minister has been in judicial custody for the last 18 months.

He told the court that the charges of sexual exploitation against his client has been dropped by the Delhi High court.

The counsel added that Kanda's earlier bail pleas were rejected because of the serious charge of sexual exploitation against him, and that Kanda was entitled for bail now.

The court asked Delhi Police to file reply on the bail plea by Tuesday.

Kanda and his aide Aruna Chadha are accused of abetting the Aug 4-5, 2012, suicide of a 23-year-old former air hostess, who left behind a note accusing the duo of harassing her.

Chadha and Kanda have been charged with abetting suicide, criminal conspiracy, forgery and hacking computers and sending offensive or false messages.
