NEW DELHI: After son Shiv Menon, it is time for Congress MP Shashi Tharoor to be present before the Special Investigation team (SIT) of Delhi Police for round two of questioning in the mysterious death case of his wife Sunanda Pushkar.

The SIT has called the former Union Minister and Sunanda’s husband Shashi Tharoor for another round of questioning on Wednesday.

Tharoor reached the Delhi Police’s SIT office at Vasant Vihar at 11:30 AM today.

Speaking about the investigation, Delhi Police Commissioner BS Bassi informed, “We are analyzing the statements of the witnesses who have been examined so far and few other witnesses will be examined today. Tomorrow, Tharoor will be questioned once again as we need clarification on certain points from him.” (Also Read: Amar Singh called for questioning by SIT)
