"I'm ending myself today because I'm shattered inside. My trust has been broken. And I'm being cheated. Two people responsible for my death are Aruna Chadha and Gopal Goyal Kanda. Both of them have broken my trust and have misused me for their own benefits. They have ruined my life and now they are trying to sabotage my family members," Geetika wrote in her suicide note. Her family has said that Kanda had tortured her mentally. She was offered a job by Mr. Kanda after the airlines stopped operating which she rejected. She later worked for Emirates but was ousted from the job after Kanda sent them a letter telling them that she had a bad character.
Investigations have been started but Kanda was not contacted by the police yet.
