Tharoor calls Delhi Police charge sheet preposterous, says he intends to contest

Tharoor calls Delhi Police charge sheet preposterous, says he intends to contest

Mr Tharoor described the charges filed on Monday as "preposterous" and said he would "contest it vigorously". Tharoor's name appears in the "Column 2" of the chargesheet, which makes him the most likely suspect.

The police, in its charge sheet which runs into around 3,000 pages, has also alleged that Tharoor had subjected his wife to cruelty.

Delhi Police, after investigation, filed a charge sheet before Metropolitan Magistrate Dharmender Singh under the provisions of Indian Penal Code.

Tharoor says in the first tweet that the Delhi police had made it clear in the court in October 2017 that they had not found 'anything against anyone'.

Days before her death, Pushkar has accused her husband publically of having an affair with Pakistani journalist Mehr Tarar. The couple got married on August 22, 2010 at Tharoor's ancestral home at Elavanchery in Kerala.

News 18 says the chargesheet concluded that Pushkar killed herself and hence no one has been charged with murder.

Muscat: Indian Member of Parliament Shashi Tharoor has taken to Twitter to vehemently protest his innocence, after he was charged with aiding the suicide of his late wife, Sunanda Pushkar. "Unnatural death has taken place within seven years of the couple's marriage", Srivastava said.

The case involving the death of 52-year-old business magnate Sunanda Pushkar dates back to January 17, 2014.

Asked what evidence the police had to charge Tharoor under Section 306, the Delhi police officer said: "We do not have enough evidence against him".

Even the FIR in the case could be registered after about a year of her death.

Delhi police later sent the viscera to the Federal Bureau of Investigation following a nod from the home ministry.

Tharoor, a former top United Nations diplomat and best-selling author-turned-politician in India's opposition Congress Party, hit back at the reports of the charge sheet on Twitter.

Prior to this, Swamy had appealed to the Delhi High Court but his petition was summarily dismissed as a "textbook example of political interest litigation".

April 20, 2018: The SIT told the Supreme Court a draft final report had been prepared after "thorough professional and scientific investigations" in the case.
