Subramanian Swamy moves Delhi HC for charge sheet copy in Sunanda Pushkar caseUpdated: Jul 31, 2017 21:56 IST
Senior BJP leader Subramanian Swamy on Monday filed a fresh application in the Delhi high court seeking within 45 days a copy of the charge sheet to be filed by the city police in connection with the death of Congress MP Shashi Tharoor’s wife Sunanada Pushkar.
The BJP leader moved the fresh plea in his pending petition seeking a court-monitored CBI-led special investigation (SIT) probe into Pushkar’s death.
Earlier, a bench of justices G S Sistani and Chander Shekhar, during the hearing of Tharoor’s stepson Shiv Menon’s plea for his impleadment in the BJP leader’s petition, had expressed concern over failure of the police to file a charge sheet in the case even after three-and-a-half years.
The court had asked Delhi Police to make its stand clear by August 1.
Pushkar was found dead under mysterious circumstances in a suite of a five-star hotel in south Delhi on the night of January 17, 2014.
