Delhi HC refuses to pass interim order on Shashi Tharoor’s plea to restrain channel from airing news on his wife
Delhi High Court today refused to pass interim order on Shashi Tharoor’s plea to restrain The Republic channel from airing news on his wife Sunanda Pushkar’s death.
Congress leader Shashi Tharoor had pleaded before the High Court seeking direction to restrain the channel and its journalist Arnab Goswami from misreporting the case. Mr Tharoor had alleged that despite an assurance given in the court, Goswami and the news channel were engaged in defaming and maligning him.
Sunanda Pushkar was found dead in a suite of a five-star hotel in south Delhi on January 17, 2014. The matter is under investigation.
