Shashi Tharoor granted anticipatory bail

New Delhi, July 5: A court here on Thursday granted anticipatory bail to Congress MP Shashi Tharoor in a case related to the death of his wife Sunanda Pushkar. Additional Sessions Judge Arvind Kumar allowed his anticipatory bail plea asking him to furnish a personal and surety bond of Rs 1 lakh. The court has directed Tharoor not to tamper with evidence and nor try to influence the witnesses. The court has also asked him not to leave the country without permission. Delhi Police has opposed Tharoor’s plea. The court observed that the leader was not arrested although the case was registered on January 1 2015 and more than three and a half years have already passed. On June 5, the court took cognizance of the charge-sheet filed by the police. (IANS)
