With the prime accused former Haryana Minister Gopal Kanda still missing after Six Police teams have started searching only after a significant delay in the action, there are several questions being raised if the minister actually was helped by the police with the delay which helped him to abscond.
The minister was to reach the police station for a formal interrogation by the evening of Wednesday but he was nowhere to be seen even after raiding his house, a school of his family members in Sisra and his farm house.
However Mr Kanda's lawyers are stubborn enough to rebuke the claims that he was absconding. "If a person has approached court for anticipatory bail, how can he be absconding? The arrest is not punitive, it's only preventive," said Mr Kanda's lawyer KTS Tulsi said .
Talking about the girl she said that she was hyper-sensitive and also had a mixture of emotions for Mr Kanda, love and hatred. She also acted “spurned”. Later he added that the media is blowing hot air by making a mountain of a mole hill though there was not a single allegation in the suicide note or the FIR that suggested aiding and abetting a suicide.
The girl's family however alleges that Kanda had tortured and blackmailed their daughter to the verge of severe depression. Her mother Anuradha Sharma said that the politician had called her hours before the suicide too. She has requested that the police, media and the judiciary help her in punishing Kanda for his crime.
National Commission for Women has also approached the mother of the deceased and promised the help of a lawyer free of charge.
Kanda had spoken to NDTV before he was absconding and he said that he had not contacted Sharma for the past two months. But in an investigation it was revealed that he had used a SIM card that was registered under the name of an associate, Mandeep, to torture the girl.
