Coming out as a fresh development in Sunanda Pushkar’s murder case, an application has been filed in the Delhi High Court seeking to conclude the investigations in a time-bound manner. The application was filed by Sunanda Pushkar’s son from first marriage, Shiv Menon.
During the ongoing hearing of the case, Shiv Menon’s counsel questioned the petitioner, Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) leader Subramanian Swamy’s interest in the death case.
Terming is as a mere publicity stunt, the counsel said, “It is not a Public Interest Litigation, but a ‘Publicity Interest Litigation'”.
Hitting back to counsel’s comment, Swamy said he did not need any publicity as he was an MP.
Hinting out at weak police investigation, Swamy told reporters that the Delhi Police was asked searching questions by the Delhi High Court today. The officers did not had convincing answers, he added.
Earlier on Monday, BJP’s Swamy had filed a fresh application in the case seeking the copy copy of the chargesheet within 45 days from the police.
On July 22, Shiv Menon had claimed that Subramanian Swamy had no locus standi in the Susnanda Pushkar murder case.
