During a hearing in the case of the death of Congress MP Shashi Tharoor’s wife Sunanda Pushkar, the Delhi Police on Tuesday said an accused cannot surpass a magisterial court and approach a sessions court for anticipatory bail.

The submissions were made by Rahul Mehra, standing counsel of the Delhi Police, who is also assisting the court in a plea filed by a lawyer seeking cancellation of Tharoor’s anticipatory bail in the case. However, while stating this, Mehra also raised questions on the locus of the petitioner, advocate Deepak Anand, who had challenged a July 5 order granting anticipatory bail.
