A bench of Justices GS Sistani and Chander Shekharsaid the police had collected evidence in the matter in February 2015 but has not yet got the final result of the electronic evidences they have seized in the matter including that of the close friends of Tharoor and Pushkar.
"This (collecting of evidence) is something that happened in February 2015. Why it took two years for the police to get the final result," the bench asked.
The court said it has to look into this aspect as to why there was a delay in the matter.
The court's oral observation came during hearing of plea by BJP leader Subramanian Swamy who has sought a court-monitored CBI-led special investigation (SIT) probe into Pushkar's death.
