In the recent development in Sunanda Pushkar death case, the Supreme Court on February 23 has issued a notice to Delhi Police.

The apex court has sought a response from the Delhi police on a plea filed by BJP leader Subramanian Swamy who has been urging for a court-monitored SIT probe into the death of Congress MP Shashi Tharoor’s wife.

On October 26 last year, the Delhi High Court had rejected his plea and termed it as ‘Political Interest Litigation’.

“This is perhaps a textbook example of political interest litigation dressed up as public interest litigation,” the High Court bench had remarked.

In his plea, the BJP leader had alleged that “very influential people are involved in the case, leading to attempts to protect them and the matter has faced a lot of unnecessary delay already”.

“The court has issued notice to the Delhi Police to answer all the charges I have made in my petition,” Swamy said to the media after hearing SC’s hearing.
