Haryana governor accepts Kanda’s resignationAugust 6th, 2012 - 5:53 pm ICT by IANS
Chandigarh, Aug 6 (IANS) Haryana Governor Jagannath Pahadia Monday accepted the resignation of controversial minister of state for home and urban local bodies Gopal Kanda from the Bhupinder Singh Hooda government.
An official spokesman said here that Chief Minister Hooda had forwarded the resignation to the governor Monday morning for acceptance.
Kanda, blamed by a former flight attendant for driving her to suicide, submitted his resignation to Hooda in New Delhi Sunday evening.
The resignation came just hours after Kanda was booked for abetment to suicide by the Delhi Police after the former flight attendant, Geetika Sharma, killed herself in New Delhi Sunday. She had, in her suicide note, accused him of harassing her which led to her suicide.
Kanda owned the MDLR Airlines where Sharma worked as a flight attendant. After the airline ceased to function in 2009, Sharma was given a job in another company owned by Kanda.
According to the victim’s brother, Gaurav Sharma, his sister was being constantly mentally harassed by Kanda and his colleague Aruna Chadha.
