Shashi Tharoor charged in Sunanda Pushkar's suicide; Tharoor says 'unbelievable'


Congress MP Shashi Tharoor has been charged with abetting suicide as the Delhi police submitted the charge sheet in the death of his wife Sunanda Pushkar in 2014. The charge sheet also underlines that Sunanda had committed suicide.

If the Delhi police's findings held true, Tharoor will be subjected to 10 years of imprisonment. The Court will hear the case once again on 24 May.

Mr. Tharoor responded to the developments calling the charges as "preposterous".

Tharoor tweeted that if this is the findings of the Delhi Police after four years, then it does not speak well  of the methods or motivations of the police.

"I have taken note of the filing of this preposterous charge sheet & intend to contest it vigorously. No one who knew Sunanda believes she would ever have committed suicide, let alone abetment on my part", Tharoor tweeted.

"If this is conclusion arrived at after 4+ years of investigation, it does not speak well of the methods or motivations of the Delhi Police. In Oct 17, the Law Officer made a statement in the Delhi High Court that they have not found anything against anyone & now in 6 months they say that I have abetted a suicide. unbelievable!", he added.

Sunanda Pushkar was found dead in a room at the star hotel in New Delhi's Chanakyapuri  on 2014 January 17.
