Delhi HC to hear plea seeking SIT probe in Sunanda Pushkar's death

ANI  |  New Delhi [India] 

The High will today hear a plea filed by (BJP) leader Subramanian Swamy seeking a Special Investigation Team (SIT) probe into Sunanda Pushkar's mysterious death.

Swamy on July 5 filed a (PIL) in the High in the Sunanda Pushkar case, seeking a monitored probe and re-investigation by the Police.

The filed by Swamy asserts that the Sunanda Pushkar's case is "extreme example of the slow-motion of the criminal justice process and the extent to which it can be subverted by the rich and influential".

The PIL in the case has sought setting up of a (CBI) headed SIT to probe in a time bound manner under a monitored mechanism under Article 226 of the Constitution of India, 1950, the case of the former in which inordinate delays have been caused.

51-year-old Pushkar was found dead at a suite in a five-star hotel in South on the night of January 17, 2014, a day after her spat with Pakistani journalist Mehr Tarar on Twitter over her alleged affair with Tharoor.
