Delhi’s Patiala House Court has accepted Congress MP Shashi Tharoor’s anticipatory bail plea, thereby granting him protection from arrest, in the case of his wife Sunanda Pushkar’s death.
Tharoor was granted bail on the condition he furnished a bail bond of Rs 1 lakh. The judge also directed him not to leave the country without the court’s permission.
The Delhi Police opposed Tharoor’s bail plea, saying he might “flee the country”.
Pushkar was found dead in a suite of a luxury hotel in the city on the night of January 17, 2014. Tharoor has been charged under sections 498A (husband or his relative subjecting a woman to cruelty) and 306 (abetment of suicide) of the Indian Penal Code (IPC), but has not been arrested in the case.
