Delhi HC Grants Time to Prosecution to Reply to Shashi Tharoor’s Plea Seeking Copies of Sunanda Pushkar’s Tweets
The Delhi High Court granted more time to the prosecution to file its reply on merits in a plea moved by Dr. Shashi Tharoor seeking copies of tweets posted by Sunanda Pushkar moments before her death. The Single Bench of Justice Manoj Kumar Ohri has also asked both the parties to submit brief notes on authorities and legal arguments that they’re relying upon. Appearing for Tharoor, Senior Advocate Vikas Pahwa argued that no evidence or reports have been put on record to prove the actual cause of Sunanda Pushkar’s death. Pahwa further submitted that the investigation started in 2014, and till date, prosecution has not presented the actual cause of Sunanda Pushkar’s death. He also pointed out that, both the SIT report and the report of the New Board of Health Ministry, had concluded that the cause of death is neither suicidal or homicidal.
