Shashi Tharoor gets anticipatory bail in Sunanda Pushkar death case

A Delhi court on Thursday granted anticipatory bail to Senior Congress leader Shashi Tharoor on a personal bond of ₹1 lakh with one surety in the Sunanda Pushkar death case.

Special Judge Arvind Kumar granted bail to Shashi Tharoor and has asked him not to leave the country without its permission.

Shashi Tharoor had moved the court on July 3 seeking anticipatory bail after he was named as an accused in the case and summoned by the police on July 7.

On July 4, the Judge reserved the order after hearing arguments by both sides.

Sunanda Pushkar, 51, was found dead at a five-star hotel in Delhi on January 17, 2014, after she accused her husband on social media of having an affair with a Pakistani journalist.
