Reacting to a plea filed by Congress MP Shashi Tharoor’s application for anticipatory bail in the Sunanda Pushkar death case where he has been named as the main accused, Special Judge Arvind Kumar of a Delhi Court, reserved his judgment on Wednesday (July 4). Tharoor, the MP from Thiruvananthapuram, has been summoned by the court on July 7.
Tharoor on Tuesday had appealed before the court that the chargesheet filed shows that the Special Investigation Team (SIT) had categorically stated that the probe was concluded and that his custodial interrogation was not required.
Delhi Police, however, has opposed this anticipatory bail plea, saying Tharoor might flee the country.
