Sunanda Death Probe: Shashi Tharoor granted anticipatory bail by Delhi Court

A chargesheet has finally been filed in the Sunanda Pushkar case four years  after her death. Filed by the Delhi Police a city court on Monday, the charge sheet names Pushkar’s  husband and Congress leader Shashi Tharoor as accused for aiding her suicide, under sections 306 (Abetment of suicide) and 498A (Husband or relative of husband of a woman subjecting her to cruelty) of the Indian Penal Code (IPC).

The case will be heard by a CBI judge as Shashi Tharoor is a sitting member of Parliament. The next date of hearing in the case is May 24.

Shashi Tharoor reacted to the 3,000 page chargesheet by saying it is ‘unbelievable’ in two tweets


Sunanda was found dead under mysterious circumstances in a suite of a five-star hotel in Delhi on the night of January 17, 2014. Earlier this year, Tharoor said he was looking for a conclusion in his wife’s death case.

Incidentally, on that day, Tharoor’s statement came hours after the Supreme Court issued a notice to the Delhi Police on Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) leader Subramanian Swamy’s appeal challenging the Delhi High Court order dismissing his plea for a Special Investigation Team (SIT)-led probe into the case.
