New Delhi: The Delhi Rouse Avenue Court cleared Congress MP Shashi Tharoor of all the charges in his wife Sunanda Pushkar ‘mysterious’ death in 2014, on Wednesday.

“The accused is discharged,” Special Judge Geetanjali Goel said. She also asked them to file a bond under CrPC. These took place during a virtual hearing in Tharoor’s presence.

The charges of abetment to suicide and cruelty were pressed by the prosecution under Section 306 and 498A of the Indian Penal Code and alternatively for murder under Section 302.

“Most grateful, your honour. It’s been seven-and-half years of absolute torture. I really appreciate it,” he said, adding that his faith in the Indian judiciary had been “vindicated”.

“This brings a significant conclusion to the long nightmare which had enveloped me after the tragic passing of my late wife Sunanda. I have weathered dozens of unfounded accusations and media vilification patiently sustained my faith in the judiciary, which today stands vindicated,” Tharoor wrote.
