Sunanda Pushkar death case: Email, help’s statement part of evidence against Shashi Tharoor

Shashi Tharoor with his late wife Sunanda Pushkar at a wedding reception in February  2010 in New Delhi. Pushkar was found dead at a seven-star hotel where the couple had checked in together a day earlier.

Neighbourhood News Desk: Evidence cited by the police, including the statement of Congress MP Shashi Tharoor’s domestic help, bruises on his wife Sunanda Pushkar’s body and an email sent by Pushkar to her husband expressing “no desire to live” led a city court on Tuesday to summon Tharooron July 7 to face trial on the charge of abetment to suicide.

Pushkar was found dead in the Leela Hotel on January 17, 2014. Earlier, the Delhi Police had told the court that Pushkar (51) died because of poisoning and that 27 Alprax anti-depressant tablets were found in her suite but it was not clear how many pills she had consumed prior to her death. The court had then reserved its order for June 5, on whether to summon Tharoor as an accused in the case.
