In one of her emails to Tharoor, said the police, she had written that she had “no desire to live…all I pray for is death.”

The Hush Post: Former union minister Congress leader Shashi Tharoor has been granted relief in the Sunanda Pushkar death case. The court has granted protection from arrest to Tharoor.

Tharoor was summoned to court on Friday. The court had last month said there were “sufficient grounds” to proceed against him on charges of cruelty and abetment to suicide.

While granting anticipatory bail to Tharoor, the court said he can’t fly abroad without the permission of the court and has to submit Rs. One lakh as surety.

51-year-old Sunanda Pushkar was found dead in her suite at a five-star hotel in Delhi on January 17, 2014, two days after she accused her husband on social media of having an affair with a Pakistani journalist.

The investigators say, “Tharoor ignored her calls and disconnected her calls in the days before her death.” Sunanda Pushkar used social media to reach him, but those messages were also ignored, says the charge-sheet.

In one of her emails to Tharoor, said the police, she had written that she had “no desire to live…all I pray for is death.”

Her last mails and messages on social media have been taken by the police as her dying declaration.

Tharoor is the only person named as an accused in the 3,000-page charge-sheet.

In his appeal for protection, Tharoor said the charge-sheet was filed without any arrest. “The law is very clear that if the charge-sheet is filed without arrest, bail is inevitable,” Tharoor’s lawyer contended.

The former minister has called the charges “preposterous and baseless” and the product of a “malicious and vindictive campaign.”
