On a ransom of Rs 1 lakh, the court has instructed Tharoor not to tamper with the evidence and leave the country without his permission. However, police has opposed Shashi Tharoor’s bail, claiming he might flee the country.
The 62-year-old parliamentarian from Thiruvananthapuram has been asked to appear before Additional Chief Metropolitan Magistrate Samar Vishal on Saturday.
On July 3, Tharoor had applied to the Patiala House Court of Delhi for anticipatory bail in the case of the death of wife Sunanda Pushkar. In this case, Tharoor has already been summoned as an accused. Tharoor has been charged under section 498A and 306 of IPC.
Pushkar, 51, died under mysterious circumstances in a hotel room in south Delhi on January 17, 2014, days after she alleged that Tharoor was having an affair with a Pakistani journalist.
