Delhi HC rejects PIL seeking CBI probe of Sunanda Pushkar’s murder

NEW DELHI(PTI): The Delhi High Court on Wednesday rejected a Public Interest Litigation (PIL) seeking a Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) probe in Congress leader Shashi Tharoor’s wife Sunanda Pushkar’s death case.

Sunanda was found dead in a hotel in south Delhi in January last year.

Earlier on Wednesday, Delhi Police Commissioner B.S. Bassi had said that Tharoor will be questioned once again by the Special Investigation Team (SIT). Tharoor was interrogated at the Vasant Vihar police station in South Delhi on January 19. He was asked over 50 questions by a team of four officers in the first of three likely rounds of interrogation.

The police had earlier in January said that based on available evidence, Sunanda Pushkar, 51, was poisoned. A case of murder was registered on January 6.

Sunanda was married to Tharoor for a little less than four years.
