Sunanda Pushkar death case: Subramanian Swamy claims Delhi police tampered with evidence

Vikas Pahwa, the counsel of Shashi Tharoor, who is the principal accused in the case for abetment of suicide, has called Swamy’s intervention as ‘uncalled for’.

Senior BJP leader Subramanian Swamy has stirred a furore by claiming that Delhi Police had fiddled with the evidence in the high-profile case of Sunanda Pushkar death. Sunanda was found dead under mysterious circumstances in The Leela Palace hotel in New Delhi.

Citing the Delhi Police’s vigilance report, Subramanian Swamy has filed a petition in Patiala House Court claiming that the Delhi Police’s report itself states that there was tampering with evidence. Earlier too, Swamy had filed a plea in the court but the court had rejected it deeming it third-party intervention in the proceedings of a criminal case.

However, Subramanian Swamy had filed a plea yet again asserting that he was one of the earliest ones to file a PIL in the Sunanda Pushkar death case and that it was because of his PIL that the case is being investigated into.

Vikas Pahwa, the counsel of Shashi Tharoor, who is the principal accused in the case for abetment of suicide, has called Swamy’s intervention as ‘uncalled for’. Tharoor’s counsel has maintained that Swamy is neither the complainant nor the victim in the case. The judge has listed the case for arguments on April 26. He has also permitted Tharoor to file his response to Swamy’s application under Section 301, CrPC.

On 17 January 2014, a day after the Twitter controversy, Sunanda was found dead in room number 345 of the Leela Palace hotel in Chanakyapuri, New Delhi, where she and her husband Shashi Tharoor had moved to, as their house was being renovated and painted. There were also speculations of a rift between Tharoor and Sunanda after controversial tweets were put out from Tharoor’s Twitter account regarding his alleged relationship with one Pakistani journalist Mehr Tarar.
