Geetika Sharma suicide case: Cops seek removal of adverse remarks

New Delhi: Seeking expunction of adverse remarks by trial court against it in the former airhostess suicide case, the Delhi Police on Friday told the High Court that they amounted to "destroying the prosecution case before it begins."
Appearing before Justice G P Mittal, Additional Solicitor General Siddharth Luthra read out certain remarks from the trial court's order on framing of charges against former Haryana Minister Gopal Kanda and his employee Aruna Chadha.
"The trial court's remarks that the investigating agency has chosen not to unearth further circumstantial or other credible evidence on this aspect to reach the truth (with regard to the sexual exploitation of the victim) is like destroying the case of the prosecution before it begins.
