Sunanda Pushkar’s suicide case: Shashi Tharoor’s lawyers strongly advised him to stay out of ‘media circus

His lawyer Vikas Pahwa advised Congress leader Shashi Tharoor’s legal team to stay away from the “media circus” and to avoid public statements that could create confusion and lead to public debate during the trial in the case of his wife Sunanda Pushkar’s suicide. Said. A Delhi court on Wednesday quashed all charges against Tharoor in the case.

Pahwa said the Tharoor legal team had requested the magistrate to keep the investigation documents confidential and not to share them with anyone to avoid media inquiries. He said the media was running a “full-scale media trial parallel to the trial.” He said the media had the right to report court proceedings, but not to analyze the evidence and pass judgment before the trial begins. Pahwa said the media was harming the justice system by creating negative public opinion.

The court said it had not found any evidence against Tharoor that Pushkar had committed suicide. Pushkar was found dead in January 2014 at a luxury hotel in New Delhi.

Pahwa said the court orders had strengthened their faith in the criminal justice system and that the trial courts could use their power to reject the thin charge sheets filed at the outset of the trial.

Pahwa’s team of lawyers includes Gaurav Gupta and Mohammad Ali Khan, who are part of the Congress legal team.
