Sunanda Pushkar case: Delhi High Court raps Delhi Police for delay

Hearing a plea filed by BJP leader Subramanian Swamy, Delhi High Court today came down heavily on Delhi Police and demanded a report on Sunanda Pushkar’s murder probe within 2 weeks. Sunanda Pushkar was Congress MP Shashi Tharoor’s wife and was found dead under mysterious circumstances in January, 2014. The report was also sought for in the last hearing, but wasn’t produced. “If you have anything new, then come within two weeks, and if you can’t, then we will look into it,” the court said.

Meanwhile, the Delhi Police has claimed there was no delay in its probe. They said a technical investigation was not totally in their hands since the AIIMS and some foreign agencies were also involved.

BJP leader Subramanian Swamy had asked for a court monitored probe by multidisciplinary special investigation team led by the CBI to look into Pushkar’s death. Swamy had earlier sought Enforcement Directorate be a party in the Sunanda Pushkar murder probe case. In the petition, Swamy and co-petitioner advocate Ishkaran Bhandari pointed out that the DPH, in its status report said that their Economic Offence Wing (EOW) found that Sunanda’s death was related to the Indian Premier League (IPL) Cricket related issues and handed over files to the ED.

Swamy in his tweets, too, has alleged Pushkar was in know of illegal betting taking place during IPL.

Swamy also claimed various reports have suggested that Pushkar’s death was unnatural but delay in getting the scientific report was an attempt to sabotage the probe. Swamy and Advocate Bhandari have alleged that “inordinate delay” has been caused in the probe “which is a blot on the justice system”.

As of now, the bench said it was not fair to look into or monitor the investigation, but would “certainly like to know where the investigation stands as of today.”
