In the case, Shashi Tharoor v State, Senior Advocate Vikas Pahwa argues in favor of Shashi Tharoor’s discharge before the Delhi Court.Vikas Pahwa told the Court that the material collected by the Delhi Police completely exonerates Shashi Tharoor.
Earlier this week, Senior Advocate Pahwa argued before Geetanjali Goel, Special Judge, Rouse Avenue that till date, there has bee no definite opinion on Pushkar’s cause of death.
Pahwa also said that since experts have failed to prove the death of Sunanda Pushkar and hence, one must conclude that the death would fall into the only remaining category i.e. accidental death.
In August 2019, the Delhi Police had pressed for framing of charges under Sections 498A (cruelty) and 306 (abetment of suicide) or alternatively under Section 302 (murder) of the Indian Penal Code against the sole accused, Shashi Tharoor.
