Thiruvananthapuram, Feb 15:
Congress leader Shashi Tharoor, who was last week questioned by police in the case of his wife Sunanda Pushkar’s murder, Sunday termed as “false” reports in a section of media here that he was not cooperating with the probe.
Tharoor’s reaction came as media persons caught up with him here to seek his comment on the reports in a section of the media here had reported that Tharoor could be arrested as he was not cooperating with the SIT.
“I was so surprised about the reports that have surfaced in the media. I even asked the SIT (special investigation team) why they are not issuing a denial,” he said.
“The SIT said to me that since not a single official of theirs has spoken to the media, they are unable to issue a denial,” added Tharoor who was in the capital city – part of his Lok Sabha constituency – to take part in the closing ceremony of the 35th National Games that was held here Saturday.
It was in January 17, 2014 that Pushkar was found dead in a plush hotel in the national capital and in January this year, the Delhi Police concluded that she was murdered.
