Senior Advocate Subramanium Swami who is also an active member of BJP filed an PIL seeking SIT in Sunanda Pushkar’s case wherein he had made “sweeping allegations” against Tharoor and Delhi Police.
Today, Delhi HC dismissed the aforesaid PIL and thereby terming it “political interest litigation”, interestingly Shashi Tharoor was not arraigned as respondents though the PIL contains allegations against him. When Court asked for the source behind the allegations, Swami offered to file an affidavit disclosing the reason based on which he had made the accusation.
Court further observed that affidavit offered by Swami affirmed that he concealed material facts from the Court. Court said that the so-called PIL was unable to be persuaded that the probe, being carried out by the SIT, is botched up or under the influence of any party.
