Sunanda Pushkar case: Delhi Police to quiz Pak journo Mehr Tarar
New Delhi, Mar 12 (IBNS): In the latest development to the alleged murder case of Congress MP Shashi Tharoor's wife Sunanda Pushkar, the Delhi Police is likely to question Pakistani journalist Mehr Tarar, reports said.
Delhi Police Commissioner BS Bassi told media: "We will talk to Mehr Tarar as she is the relevant person in the case."
Earlier, it was reported that differences cropped up between Tharoor and his wife because of Tarar.
Tarar, meanwhile, said she is ready for the probe but is not willing to travel to India for the same and instead said the investigators will have to come to Pakistan.
"I am ready to for any investigation. They are most welcome to ask me question. I am always ready. I am not ready to come to India but they can come to Lahore," Tarar was quoted as saying by CNN-IBN.
The Delhi Police had registered a murder case for Sunanda Pushkar, who was Tharoor’s third wife. Pushkar was found dead in a five-star hotel in Delhi a year ago.
Sources said a medical report submitted by doctors in December last year establishes that Pushkar was poisoned.
Earlier in November, the Congress parliamentarian had written to the Delhi Police chief appealing him to carry out a probe which should be free of political pressure or a pre-determined outcome.
