  • Sunanda Pushkar

Sunanda Pushkar was found dead in a suite in The Leela Hotel in Chanakyapuri on January 17, 2014.

"These (the marks) seem to have been caused due to scuffle between Sunanda Pushkar Tharoor and her husband Shashi Tharoor as per the statement of their personal attendant Narain Singh". Her death came days after she was involved in a row with a Pakistani woman journalist over Twitter. The agency while asking the court to take cognisance of the charge sheet said there was enough evidence to proceed against Tharoor.

"This is coming from the manufactured conspiracies of the BJP and the Union government and the Home Ministry, under whose dictates officers of Delhi Police are labouring and working", he claimed.

The Delhi Police on Monday (May 14) submitted the charge-sheet in the Sunanda Pushkar death case at the Patiala House Court. "If this is conclusion arrived at after 4+ yrs of investigation", Tharoor tweeted.

The charge-sheet has been filed under the Section 306 (aiding and abetting the suicide) and Section 498A (harassment in marital life). The court is likely to take cognisance of the chargesheet on May 24, where Delhi Police might force his summon for further interrogation.

Iran, EU try to save nuclear deal
The EU's energy commissioner is also traveling this week to Iran to discuss strengthening European energy support to Iran. Mogherini said "the aim" is to see how Iran and the Europeans "can coordinate actions" in order to preserve the deal.

Tharoor, 62, denied the charges, calling them "preposterous".

January 23, 2014: Investigators said prima facie Sunanda Pushkar died of "hidden poisoning" as traces of two medicines - Alprazolam (anti-depressant) and Excedrin ( painkiller) - were found in her body.

Surjewala said the viscera had been sent to worldwide laboratories. The document cites medical reports, recoveries from the room and exchanges between the couple, along with Tharoor's exchanges with others, to show that the former minister had driven Pushkar to heavy depression. The charge-sheet ruled Pushkar's death as a suicide. On several occasions, "wrong" reports have been given to the media with regard to the case to "insult" Tharoor, the Congress leader said in a statement.

The petition was dismissed by the Delhi HC in October 2017, calling it "politically motivated".

According to the Indian publication, the charges were filed before the metropolitan magistrate.
