Sunanda Pushkar death; Court to hear case against Tharoor on March 7

A Delhi Court on Thursday adjourned to March 7 a case against Congress MP Shashi Tharoor, accused of abetting suicide of Sunanda Pushkar, his wife.

Special Judge Arun Bhardwaj adjourned the hearing after Delhi Police sought more time to prepare its argument on the issue of framing of charges against the parliamentarian.

Tharoor’s lawyer Vikas Pahwa told the court there are some discrepancies in documents provided by the police in the case.

Meanwhile, Tharoor moved an application seeking to travel to Bahrain and Qatar. The court said it will hear the Congress leader’s plea seeking permission for foreign visit on Friday.

On May 14, 2018, police submitted the charge sheet against Tharoor under several sections of the Indian Penal Code (IPC) pertaining to abetment of suicide and cruelty to wife.

Pushkar, 51, died under mysterious circumstances at a hotel in south Delhi on January 17, 2014, days after she alleged that Tharoor was having an affair with a Pakistani journalist.
