Two days after he had got anticipatory bail in case relating to death of his wife Sunanda Pushkar, Shashi Tharoor, Congress leader and Lok Sabha MP from Thiruvananthapuram.
Tharoor personally appeared before Additional Chief Metropolitan Magistrate Samar Vishal at the Patiala House Courts following summons issued against him in June.
The court has listed the matter for further hearing on July 26 directing Delhi Police to supply copy of charge sheet and other documents to the Congress leader.
Meanwhile, Tharoor opposed the application of BJP MP Subramanian Swamy, who has been carrying on a campaign in the case, for conducting the prosecution. Tharoor’s counsel told the court that Swamy has no locus to contest the case.
Tharoor, the former Mos for External Affairs and HRD, had earlier slammed the charges levelled against him and termed them as malicious and vindictive.
