New Delhi, Oct 28: The Delhi High Court on Thursday dismissed BJP leader Subramanian Swamy’s plea seeking probe in Sunanda Pushkar’s death, saying that his plea was a “political interest litigation” dressed as a PIL.
The High Court said that it was left with an impression that the plea was a clear example of “political interest litigation” and the BJP leader apparently concealed data and information that he should have revealed earlier.
Subramanian Swamy tweeted that he will speak to the media later.
The veteran leader didn’t receive support from the Central government and the Delhi police as they told the High Court that they don’t subscribe to Swamy’s views that the previous probes was influenced by Shashi Tharoor.
Swamy had filed the petition asking for a court-monitored probe in Sunanda Pushkar‘s mysterious death. The court also warned Subramanian Swamy and his lawyer to be extra cautious while levelling wild allegation, reported DNA.
Sunanda Pushkar was found dead in Delhi’s Hotel Leela on January 17, 2014. The body was discovered by her husband Shashi Tharoor at 9 pm in the room. A day before her death, Sunanda Pushkar had an ugly spat with Pakistan journalists Mehr Tarar on Twitter.
On October 16, the Delhi Police had informed the high court that the five-star hotel suite where Pushkar was found dead was de-sealed. The room remained sealed for three years as the police didn’t want the destruction of evidence.
