New Delhi: Congress MP Shashi Tharoor may be questioned soon in connection with his wife Sunanda Pushkar's murder, Delhi Police chief B.S. Bassi said Monday.
"I know Tharoor is in Delhi. Our SIT (Special Investigation Team) is working on the case, and if they require they will call him (Tharoor) soon," Bassi told the media.
Tharoor reached Delhi Sunday from Kerala, where he was undergoing ayurvedic rejuvenation. Pushkar, 52, was found dead in a luxury hotel here Jan 17, 2014. Police have said she was poisoned to death.
In response to a question, Bassi said Pakistani journalist Mehr Tarar, whose friendship with Tharoor had reportedly led to a row between him and Pushkar, may also be questioned if needed.
Pushkar was found dead just days after an open spat on Twitter drew attention on the couple's personal life and Tarar.
