Patiala House Court on Tuesday issued a new directive to Delhi Police to handover the possession of the room, where the body of Sunanda Pushkar was found, back to Hotel Leela by October 16.
Last month, the House Court had directed the Delhi Police to de-seal the Hotel Leela's suite no. 345 where Congress MP Shashi Tharoor's wife Sunanda Pushkar was found dead, back in 2014. The court had ordered the concerned authorities to de-seal the room within four weeks.
Also, the police were denied an extension on the grounds that the suite has been sealed for three and a half years and that the applicant is facing huge financial losses.
Sunanda Pushkar was found dead on the night of January 17, 2014.
