New Delhi, Sep 7 (IANS) A Delhi court Friday rejected the bail plea of Aruna Chaddha, an accused in former flight attendant Geetika Sharma’s suicide.

District Judge S.K. Sarvaria dismissed the bail application of Chaddha, an official of the now-defunct MDLR Airlines where Geetika too worked.

She was arrested Aug 8 and the court last week extended her judicial custody till Sep 11.

Former Haryana minister Gopal Goyal Kanda, employer of Chaddha and Geetika, is the prime accused in the case. He too is in judicial custody.

Geetika, 23, accused Kanda and Chaddha of harassing her and forcing her to commit suicide. She died on the night of Aug 4-5 at her house in New Delhi.

Both Kanda and Chaddha have denied the allegations.

Charges of criminal intimidation and abetment to suicide were slapped on Kanda and Chaddha over the suicide.
