Tharoor’s extra-marital affair nothing but imagination: Shashi’s Lawyer tells Delhi Court


New Delhi, Mar 26 (ILNS) Congress Parliamentarian Shashi Tharoor’s lawyer Vikas Pahwa today told a Delhi Court that the prosecution’s claim about the politician’s extra-marital affair were nothing more than “imagination”.

Addressing the arguments on charge in the Sunanda Pushkar death case before Special CBI Judge Geetanjali Goyal, Senior Advocate Vikas Pahwa said that prosecution has absolutely no evidence to support its claim of Tharoor having an extra-marital affair.

“What is the evidence of extra-marital affair? The only letter is a draft letter, that too from someone else’s computer. They don’t even have evidence that the letter was sent to anyone or recieved by anyone,” the senior counsel contended before the court.

While relying on various case laws, Mr Pahwa argued that certain amount of extra-marital affair does not amount to cruelty.

“First, they have to prove a suicide, then the question of abetment comes in,” he noted. ILNS/SNG/RJ
