Sunanda Pushkar case: Shashi Tharoor summoned by Patiala House Court

In the ongoing Sunanda Pushkar case, where Congress MP Shashi Tharoor is charged with ‘abetment to suicide’ in his wife’s death, has been summoned by Delhi’s Patiala House Court. He has been asked to appear before the court on 7th July.

Earlier in May, Delhi Police had filed their charge sheet in the Sunanda Pushkar murder case and charged her husband, Congress leader and MP Shashi Tharoor under sections 498A and Section 306 in the case. The Charge sheet was reportedly filed before Metropolitan Magistrate Dharmender Singh. Section 498A involves charges for the husband or his family members subjecting a wife to cruelty and Section 306 of the IPC covers abetment to suicide.

The fact that Shashi Tharoor might be charged with section 306 was reported earlier. However, the addition of section 498A is the charge sheet might mean more troubles for Shashi Tharoor. Shashi Tharoor’s wife, Sunanda Pushkar was found dead in her hotel room on January 17, 2014 under mysterious circumstances. Rajya Sabha MP and legal activist Subramanian Swamy had asked for a court-monitored probe in the case by a multidisciplinary special investigations team. The Delhi Police was criticised by the Delhi High Court for delays in the investigations. AIIMS had earlier confirmed that Sunanda’s death has been due to poisoning. The PIL submitted by Swamy with regard to the case was dismissed by the Delhi HC initially but Swamy had moved to Supreme Court against the decision.
