New Delhi: Patiala House Court here on Saturday granted regular bail to Congress leader Sashi Tharoor in the Sunanda Pushkar death case.
The court converted his anticipatory bail to regular bail.
Additional Chief Metropolitan Magistrate Samar Vishal said in his order that, “Tharoor appeared before the court in compliance of the summons. He has already been admitted to bail by the sessions court. In compliance of the sessions court order, he has submitted bail bonds which are accepted.”
Earlier, Tharoor had appeared before the court. His lawyer Vikas Pahwa sought permission of the court to file a fresh application for regular bail, but the court said there was no requirement for it as he had already received the Sessions court order.
The Delhi Police’s chargesheet had named Tharoor as an accused in the case.
Notably, Sunanda Pushkar (51) was found dead under mysterious circumstances in her suite at a five star hotel in Delhi on January 17, 2014.
