Sunanda Pushkar’s emails are being treated as ‘dying declaration’, Delhi Police informs Court

Sunanda Pushkar wrote in an email to her husband that she had no desire to live. According to reports, the additional public prosecutor Atul Srivastava yesterday argued before the Delhi Metropolitan Court that 9 days prior to her death, Sunanda Pushkar had written to Shashi Tharoor, “I don’t care about the tests. I have no desire to live. All I pray is death.”

The Delhi police have charged Shashi Tharoor with abetment to suicide in his wife Sunanda Pushkar’s death case. Yesterday the APP on behalf of the Delhi Police the APP reportedly informed the court that Sunanda’s emails and social media posts are being taken as a dying declaration. Hearing the matter, Additional Chief Metropolitan Magistrate Samar Vishal set the next date as June 5th for deciding on whether to take cognizance of the Charge sheet. The Delhi Police also reportedly requested the court to consider the case under section 113 (A) of the IPC.

Ishkaran Bhandari, one of the lawyers working with Subramanian Swamy who petitioned the courts to reopen the case has stated that the case might mean trouble for Shashi Tharoor because the police have confirmed Sunanda’s death was due to poisoning and her death occurred within 7 years of her marriage to Shashi Tharoor.

Shashi Tharoor has also been charged with section 498A (husband or his relatives subjecting a woman to cruelty)  along with section 306 (abetment to suicide). According to reports, the APP also informed the court that 27 Alprax tablets were found in her room but there is no clarity on how many she consumed. In the nearly 3000-page charge sheet, the Delhi Police has also reportedly named the couple’s domestic help Narayan Singh as a key witness. The police reportedly argued that Sunanda was subjected to mental and physical cruelty.

Sunanda Pushkar was found dead in her hotel room on January 17, 2014. MP and legal activist Subramanian Swamy had requested for a court-monitored probe by multidisciplinary special investigations team. The Delhi police had been earlier criticised by High Court for delays in the investigations.
