New Delhi, July 13: The Supreme Court on Friday disposed off Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) leader Subramanian Swamy’s plea seeking a court-monitored SIT probe into the Sunanda Pushkar death case, stating that a charge-sheet has already been filed and the trial has commenced.
Justice Arun Mishra and Justice S. Abdul Nazir said “this matter is over” even as Swamy sought the court’s permission to make some comments.
Pushkar, who married Congress MP Tharoor in 2010, was found dead under mysterious circumstances in a room at the Leela Palace Hotel in Delhi on January 17, 2014. Police have accused Tharoor of abetment to suicide. The trial court however granted Tharoor bail in the case.
Swamy had approached the top court against the Delhi High Court’s order that dismissed his plea for a court-monitored probe into Pushkar’s death.
On October 26, 2017, the Delhi High Court had dismissed Swamy’s plea while terming it as a “political interest litigation”.
