A look-out notice has been issued by the Delhi police against former Haryana minister Gopal Kanda, accused of abetting the suicide of his former employee and is absconding.

A senior police official said all airports have also been alerted to ensure that Kanda does not fly out of the country. He has not appeared before the police despite a notice issued to him to join investigations in the case of suicide of Geetika Sharma, who had accused the him of harassing her.

The police have intensified searches to arrest him. Six police teams were looking for him in connection with the case.

Meanwhile, a Delhi police team headed by ACP Shailender Singh raided the former minister's Rania Road house at Sirsa around 10:30 pm.

This is the second such raid within 24 hours at the sprawling mansion of the Kandas in search of the former minister of Haryana home affairs.

The police team remained inside the premises for nearly 20 minutes.

Emerging out of Kanda's house, the ACP told media persons that the accused was not found inside and the raid was part of the ongoing investigations.


Meanwhile, sources said more Delhi police personnel were in Sirsa keeping an eye on the close aides of the former minister to get any clue of his whereabouts.
