A Delhi court on Saturday granted prominent Indian National Congress leader Shashi Tharoor regular bail in connection with the death case of his wife Sunanda Pushkar, Times of India reported.
During a hearing of the case, the judge said there was need for a formal bail application to be filed. Tharoor, a noted author and erstwhile international civil servant, was earlier granted anticipatory bail subject to a INR100,000 surety bond. He was also barred from leaving India without the court’s permission.
Last month, Delhi Police named Tharoor as an accused on cruelty and abetting suicide charges. The star MP has dismissed the charges as “preposterous”. Pushkar was found dead under mysterious circumstances at a luxury Delhi hotel on January 17, 2014.
