Delhi's Rouse Avenue Court dismissed Shashi Tharoor's application, which sought that tweets by Sunanda Pushkar, just before her demise, be made a part of the charge sheet
New Delhi: Delhi's Rouse Avenue Court dismissed the application of Shashi Tharoor to incorporate the tweets of his wife Sunanda Pushkar, before her death. Tharoor's lawyers had sought that tweets by Pushkar, just before her demise, be made a part of the charge sheet.
Lawyer of Shashi Tharoor said that the prosecutor didn't read the charge sheet which was submitted by the police. Meanwhile, the prosecutor didn't read whether the death was suicide or murder, which the physiologist said.
Family members or friends didn't issue any statement claiming that Tharoor had physically abused Sunanda. Brother of Sunanda said that his sister was happy in the relationship with Tharoor.
The court said that the case would be reconsidered on October 17 in Delhi Patiala court.
Sunanda was found dead inside her suite at a five-star hotel here in January 2014, a day after she was involved in a spat with Pakistani journalist Mehr Tarar on Twitter over the latter's alleged affair with Tharoor, the Congress MP from Thiruvananthapuram, Kerala.
