Sunanda Pushkar death case: Delhi police moves Delhi HC challenging Tharoor’s discharge

New Delhi: The Delhi Police on Thursday moved the Delhi High Court seeking revision of an order by a trial court last year discharging Congress leader Shashi Tharoor in connection with his wife Sunanda Pushkar’s death case.

Justice D.K. Sharma asked the counsel for the Delhi Police to supply a copy of its petition to Tharoor’s counsel, who claimed the plea was not served to him and it was “deliberately” sent on a wrong email id, as reported by news agency PTI.

The high court also issued notice and sought response of Tharoor on an application by police seeking to condone the delay in filing the revision petition against the trial court’s August 18, 2021 order. It also directed that copies and documents relating to the case shall not be supplied to any other person except the parties, the report added.

The high court listed the matter for hearing on February 7, 2023.

In August 2021, a trial court had discharged Tharoor from charges of abetment to suicide of his wife, Sunanda Pushkar, who was found dead in a luxury hotel.

Pushkar, a prominent face in Delhi circles, was found dead in a suite of a luxury hotel on the night of January 17, 2014.

Later, Tharoor was booked under sections 498A (husband or his relative subjecting a woman to cruelty) and 306 (abetment to suicide) of the Indian Penal Code.
