Sunanda Pushkar death case: Shashi Tharoor granted anticipatory bail
The acceptance of the plea came a day after Delhi Police opposed it, saying that Tharoor might “flee the country”.
Shashi Tharoor has already been summoned as an accused in the case on July 7 by an Additional Chief Metropolitan Magistrate
Delhi’s Patiala House Court on Thursday accepted Congress MP Shashi Tharoor’s anticipatory bail plea, thereby granting him protection from arrest, in the case of his wife Sunanda Pushkar’s death. Special Judge Arvind Kumar granted Tharoor the relief on the condition that Tharoor furnishes a bail bond of Rs 1 lakh and also directed him not to leave the country without permission. The judge also asked him not to tamper with evidence.
