New Delhi :  

Delhi High Court on Thursday directed Delhi Police to submit status report of Sunanda Pushkar death case in three days. The next date of hearing in the case is August 1.  

"Delhi Police said that they have no objection to CBI inquiry if the Court decides so," said BJP leader Subramanian Swamy.

Earlier on July 14, Delhi police on Friday sought the damage report of the sealed suite no. 345 from Hotel Leela Palace where Sunanda was found dead on January 17, 2014.

The Hotel Leela Palace room no. 345 has been closed since 2014 and the Police have no clue so far how Sunanda, wife of Congress leader Shashi Tharoor died.

After several forensic experts’ visits to the room and five others reports from different medical boards, nothing could be found about the cause of her death.

Swamy on July 6 had filed a petition in the court seeking a court monitored enquiry into the death of Sunanda. The Court also asked Swamy that why he woke up so late for which Swami replied he has come after exhausting all other options.

Sunanda Pushkar, wife of Congress MP Shashi Tharoor was found dead in a suit of The Hotel Leela Palace in South Delhi on January 17, 2014.
