Court Allows Congress Leader Shashi Tharoor To Travel To US

Court has directed Shashi Tharoor to provide his US travel details to investigating officer


NEW DELHI: 

A special court today allowed Congress leader Shashi Tharoor to travel to the US after he was stopped from going abroad pending a decision in his wife Sunanda Pushkar's death case.

Mr Tharoor moved an application seeking permission to visit the US in May to attend some conferences and events.

Special Judge Arun Bhardwaj allowed his plea.

The court has directed Mr Tharoor to provide the travel details to the investigating officer. 

It also asked him not to tamper with the evidence or influence witnesses in the case.

On July 3, 2018, the Congress leader was granted bail on the condition that he will not leave the country without permission.

On May 14 that year, the police submitted a chargesheet against Mr Tharoor under several sections of the Indian Penal Code (IPC) pertaining to abetment of suicide and cruelty to wife.

Ms Pushkar, 51, died under mysterious circumstances at a hotel in south 

Delhi on January 17, 2014, days after she alleged that Mr Tharoor was having an affair with a Pakistani journalist.
