On Thursday, Delhi’s Patiala House Court granted anticipatory bail to Congress MP Shashi Tharoor in the Sunanda Pushkar death case. He got anticipatory bail two days before he’s been ordered to appear in court to stand trial in the case in which he’s an accused.
On June 5, a Delhi court ordered Tharoor to appear in court on July 7, after taking cognizance of the chargesheet filed in the Pushkar death case.
The court took cognizance of Tharoor’s alleged offences of abetment of suicide and committing cruelty towards Pushkar.
The judge said, “I have heard the prosecutor. I have gone through and perused the chargesheet and the documents filed along with it. On the basis of police report (chargesheet), I take cognizance of offence of abetment of suicide of late Sunanda Pushkar and committing cruelty upon her by Dr Shashi Tharoor.”
The court added, “There exists sufficient grounds to proceed against Tharoor for commission of offences of Section 306 and 498 A of IPC. Issue summons to him for appearance for July 7.”
