Congress MP Shashi Tharoor reiterated his stand on the case related to the mysterious death of his wife Sunanda Pushkar and said on Sunday that he will fully cooperate with the ongoing investigations. 

During a press conference in Bengaluru, Tharoor said that he will participate in the investigations into Sunanda's death, barring the hostile and publicity seeking attempts made by few people. 

"No one in this country can be more anxious than me to see the conclusion of this issue. I will cooperate with authorities and not with obstreperous and publicity seeking attempts by others," said Tharoor. 

Tharoor's stepson Shiv Menon has moved the Delhi High Court challenging the locus standi of BJP leader Subramanian Swamy demanding time-bound court-monitored investigation into his mother's mysterious death.

Swamy, on Saturday, said that the court would take the decision in connection with him demanding a court-monitored probe. 

"He (Shiv Menon) doesn't want me to proceed with the case. It is for the court to decide whether I am giving important facts or not. The Delhi Police council even said that I come to the court with facts that have heavy weightage," Swamy told news agency ANI. 

Menon has alleged that Swamy filed the plea for sake of publicity and not to seek justice for Sunanda. 

The next hearing of the matter is likely to take place on Monday.
