Sunanda murder: Tharoor meets lawyers ahead of questioning

New Delhi: Former Union minister and Congress leader Shashi Tharoor reportedly met a team of lawyers at his residence on Monday to strategize on possible replies to be given to the Delhi Police when they interrogate him in connection with the murder probe of his late wife Sunanda Pushkar.

Tharoor continued to avoid interactions with the media, days after calling them an irresponsible institution. He described one television channel as obnoxious in its efforts to pin the murder of Sunanda on him.

Earlier on Monday, Delhi Police commissioner BS Bassi said Tharoor will be questioned soon.

Tharoor reached the national capital from Kerala this afternoon.

The Delhi Police had last week issued a legal notice to Tharoor, asking him to join the murder probe of his wife at the earliest.

Pushkar, who married Tharoor in 2010, had checked into Leela Hotel in Chanakyapuri a day before her death on January 17, 2014.

Tharoor's aides said the couple had checked into the luxury hotel because of renovation work at his New Delhi bungalow.

Prior to her death, Sunanda was embroiled in a spat with Pakistan-based journalist, Mehr Tarar, who she accused of stalking her husband.
