4 years after Sunanda Pushkar's death, Room 345 handed over to Leela Hotel
After almost 3 years 9 months, the five-star hotel suite where Congress leader Shashi Tharoor's wife Sunanda Pushkar was found dead in 2014 has been de-sealed, court told on Monday.
Earlier, the Patiala House Court had asked the Delhi Police to de-seal the room in Hotel Leela Palace in the national Capital where Congress MP Shashi Tharoor's wife Sunanda Pushkar was found dead.
The court also told the police that they could take anything they need from the room for the purpose of investigation. The court also directed the police to file a compliance report on its order by September 26.
The suite was so far remained closed to guests since the incident while the rest of the floor was fully operational.
On January 17, 2014, Pushkar's body was found in the room number 345 after she allegedly overdosed on sleeping pills. This came a day after she had a public spat on Twitter with Pakistani journalist Mehr Tarar over her alleged relationship with Tharoor. Since then, a number of conspiracy theories have cropped up over the circumstances leading to her death.
In January, a medical board constituted to examine findings of reports by the FBI and AIIMS also failed to submit conclusive results.
An FIR was registered by Delhi police on January 1, 2015 against unknown persons under IPC section 302 (murder).
