Conditional anticipatory bail was granted to Congress leader and Member of Parliament from Thiruvanthapuram Shashi Tharoor by a New Delhi court on Thursday in the case related to his wife Sunanda Pushkar’s death.
Tharoor was granted bail with conditions. He has to pay a surety of Rs 1 lakh and his movements have been restricted as he cannot leave the country without informing the court. He has also been told that he cannot tamper with evidence.
The SIT is unlikely to challenge the verdict and approach the High Court.
Though this bail has brought some relief to Tharoor there is still a long way to go before he can clear his name fully. He is to be present at the trial court on Saturday. It is expected that the charges framed against him will be known on Saturday.
