Tharoor, the Congress MP from Thiruvananthapuram, denied receiving any notice a day after the police said they asked the diplomat-turned-politician to join the investigation into the mysterious death of Sunanda in a room in a five-star hotel in New Delhi.
Sources in the police said a legal notice was sent to Tharoor to join the probe and that the questioning would be held under Section 160 of the CrPC.
On Tuesday, the police registered a murder case under Section 302 of the IPC in the death of Sunanda after receiving the final report from the board of director at the AIIMS which conducted the post-mortem report.
On Thursday, BJP leader Subramanian Swamy said the truth had already come out and Tharoor must speak the truth now.
A Special Investigation Team was set up by the Delhi Police on Wednesday to probe the case.
