Sunanda Pushkar death case: Forensic team to visit hotel suite on Sep 1
A delhi court on Saturday was informed that a Central Forensic Science Laboratory team would visit the suite at the Hotel Leela Palace where Congress leader Shashi Tharoor's wife Sunanda Pushkar was found dead in 2014.
The information of the visit was disclosed by the hotel management which has sought its de-sealing of the suite. The advocate, appearing for the hotel told the court that in order to collect more evidence the CFSL team would visit the suite on September 1.
Earlier on July 21, Metropolitan Magistrate Pankaj Sharma had ordered de-sealing of the suite within four weeks, saying the hotel could not be put through unending hardships due to laxity on part of the police.
In a plea filed by hotel authorities, they had claimed that due to the sealing of the suite, which costs between Rs 55,000 and Rs 61,000 a night, it had suffered a loss of over Rs 50 lakh in the last three years.
Pushkar was found dead in Room no: 345 of the South Delhi hotel on the night of January 17, 2014. The suite was sealed on that night itself for investigation.
