Police rely on 'psychological autopsy' to file chargesheet in Sunanda Pushkar death

Sunanda Pushkar and Shashi Tharoor

Sunanda Pushkar was found dead under mysterious circumstances in Hotel Leela Palace in Chanakyapuri diplomatic enclave in the capital in January 2014. The Delhi Police filed a case under IPC section 302 (suicide) against unidentified persons.

Leading to this, on February 23, Shashi Tharoor said that he was looking for a conclusion in his wife's death case. The chargesheet against Tharoor was filed before Metropolitan Magistrate Dharmender Singh at the Patiala House court. "The matter now is sub judice", said Special Commissioner of Police (Traffic) and chief spokesperson Dependra Pathak.

The death came after Sunanda Pushkar had came out with a statement accusing her husband of having an affair with a Pakistani journalist. Charge-sheet surprises TharoorTharoor himself went on Twitter taking a swipe at the Delhi Police and questioned its motivations.

Back in 2014, the Toronto Star reported that Pushkar was a Canadian citizen who moved to Toronto in 1999 with her son, but her stay was "a bit of a mystery".

Local media reports, citing the chargesheet, said the police had concluded that Ms Pushkar "was being harassed for long" and "her medical records show she was suffering from depression".

In his tweet, he claimed that whoever knew Sunanda Pushkar can not believe that she has committed suicide, thus it is absurd that there has been any abatement.

Shashi Tharoor MP has termed the charge-sheet submitted against him in connection with the death of his wife Sunanda Pushkar as "preposterous".

The autopsy report revealed Pushkar died due to a radioactive poison.

The law on abetting suicide is an old one, dating from 1860, and is most often used in cases where daughters-in-law kill themselves after their husbands' families harass them for dowry payments.
