Public Prosecutor, Atul Srivastava told the Special CBI court that this was as per the statement of journalist, Nalini Singh. He read out the statement of Singh in the court.
Singh had said, " I knew Sunanda for 3-4 years. For the last one year she started sharing about her personal life. She shared her relationship with Tharoor and told me that Tharoor and Tarar had spent three nights together."
Srivastava also cited the statement of the domestic help and said that the couple had been fighting for over a year before her death. They used to fight over a girl named Catty and on the matters of the Indian Premier League. The prosecutor also quoted Sundanda's brother Ashish Das who had said that his sister was happily married, but was upset during the last days of her life.
