India Crime Tharoor wants to travel abroad; court seeks police's response

Tharoor wants to travel abroad; court seeks police’s response

In its charge sheet, the Delhi Police accused Tharoor under section 306 (abetment to suicide) and section 498 A (cruelty in a marriage)

New Delhi: A Delhi court has sought a response from the city police on a plea by Congress leader Shashi Tharoor, accused in the death case of his wife Sunanda Pushkar, seeking its nod to travel abroad.

Special Judge Arun Bhardwaj issued a notice to Delhi Police and directed it to file a reply by tomorrow when he will hear the matter.

Tharoor has sought court’s permission to travel to the US in the period 5-20 May.

The former Union minister has been charged under sections 498-A (husband or his relative subjecting a woman to cruelty) and 306 of the IPC but has not been arrested in the case.

Pushkar was found dead in a suite of a luxury hotel in the city on the night of January 17, 2014. The couple was staying in the hotel as the official bungalow of Tharoor was being renovated at that time.

In August 2018, a Delhi court had allowed Tharoor to travel abroad.

The Delhi Police had, in May last year, filed its charge sheet in the death case of Sunanda Pushkar. In its charge sheet, the Delhi Police accused Tharoor under section 306 (abetment to suicide) and section 498 A (cruelty in a marriage). The charge sheet ran into almost 3,000 pages.

Police have concluded that it was a case of suicide and not murder. The FIR in the case was filed under section 302 IPC.

In January 2014, Sunanda Pushkar was found dead under mysterious circumstances in suite no 345 of Hotel Leela Palace in New Delhi. While police then suspected that she might have committed suicide, the possibility of medicine overdose was also not ruled out since Pushkar was undergoing medical treatment at the time of her death.

Two years ago, the court ordered the five-star hotel suite where Congress leader Shashi Tharoor’s wife Sunanda Pushkar was found dead in 2014 to be de-sealed.
