New Delhi, Aug 18, 2021, IBNS
A Delhi court Wednesday discharged Congress MP Shashi Tharoor of all charges in connection with the death case of his wife Sunanda Pushkar.
Special judge Geetanjali Goel has passed the order in a virtual hearing.
The court has refused to frame charges against the former Union Minister.
Thanking the judge, Tharoor in a statement said, "... This brings a significant conclusion to the long nightmare which had enveloped me after the tragic passing of my late wife Sunanda. I have weathered dozens of unfounded accusations and media vilification patiently, sustained by my faith in the Indian judiciary, which today stands vindicated.
"In our justice system, the process is all too often the punishment. Nonetheless, the fact that justice has been done, at last, will allow all of us in the family to mourn Sunanda in peace."
Pushkar was found dead at a city hotel on the night of Jan 17, 2014
