Sunanda Pushkar death case: Congress leader Shashi Tharoor allowed to go abroad

New Delhi, Apr 30 (UNI): A Delhi Special Court on Tuesday permitted Congress leader Shashi Tharoor, accused in the sensational Sunanda Pushkar death case, to go abroad from May 5 to 20.

The former Union minister and his wife Sunanda Pushkar had been staying at an upscale hotel while the official bungalow of Tharoor was being renovated. On the night of January 17, 2014, Pushkar was found dead in the hotel suite.

Tharoor has been charged under sections 498 A (husband or his relative subjecting a woman to cruelty) and 306 of the Indian Penal Code and the court of Metropolitan Magistrate sent the case to Sessions Court on February 4 for further proceedings since the offence under Section 306 (abetment of suicide) of the Indian Penal Code was triable by a sessions judge.

Tharoor had filed an application before the court of special judge Arun Bhardwaj to travel to US to attend certain press conferences because at the time of bail, the court ordered him not to travel abroad without permission of the court.

After hearing submissions on behalf of the government counsel and defence, the judge allowed the application of Tharoor.
