New Delhi: The Delhi High Court on Thursday asked Delhi Police to submit a status report within three days into the ongoing probe in the death case of Sunanda Pushkar, the wife of Congress leader Shashi Tharoor.
The court’s direction came during the hearing on BJP leader Subramanian Swamy’s plea for a court-monitored probe by a CBI-led Special Investigation Team (SIT) into the case.
Swamy had filed the PIL in the court on July 6 claiming there was an “inordinate delay” in the probe.
The Bench comprising Justice G S Sistani and Justice Chander Shekhar had asked the Ministry of Home Affairs (MHA), the CBI and the Delhi Police to specify the current status of the case. The next hearing in the case is on August 1.
Notably, Pushkar was found dead in a suite of a five-star hotel in south Delhi here on the night of January 17, 2014.
