Shashi Tharoor granted permission to travel abroad


New Delhi, Apr 30: Congress MP Shashi Tharoor, who is facing a trial in connection with the death of his wife Sunanda Pushkar, was on Tuesday granted permission to travel to USA from May 5 to May 20.

The Congress MP from Kerala's Thiruvananthapuram had moved an application seeking permission to visit the US to attend some conferences and events. Special Judge Arun Bhardwaj had on Monday sought a response from the Delhi police on Tharoor's plea seeking court's nod to travel abroad.

The Delhi Court took note that he was given permission to travel abroad earlier and had abided by the terms and conditions of the court.

On February 25, the court had allowed Tharoor to travel to Saudi Arabia from February 28 to March 4 for attending a seminar.
