Congress MP Shashi Tharoor on Friday appeared for the third time in two days before the Special Investigation Team (SIT) that is probing his wife Sunanda’s mysterious death.
Tharoor visited Sarojini Nagar Police Station informing the SIT that he was leaving for Thiruananthapuram later in the day.
Police sources said that the SIT has asked Tharoor to keep them informed about his movements and contact details so that the team can get in touch with him whenever they need him during investigation. However, police has not put any restrictions on his movement as of now.
The former Union Minister reached the police station at around 1 pm and spent about half-an-hour there. Although he was not formally questioned during the visit, the police asked him questions regarding what he had told them on Thursday during two rounds of questioning.
Meanwhile, sources also said that a team from the Economic Offences Wing (EOW) of the Delhi Police is in Mumbai to look into the business model of defunct IPL Kochi franchise and see whether there was anything fishy in its financial transactions. The team is also likely to meet BCCI officials in this regard.
Tharoor was on Thursday quizzed for nearly seven hours, spread over two rounds including for two hours late in the night during which he faced tough questions mainly on IPL controversy.
Another round of questioning of Tharoor may take place over the weekend, police sources said.
Tharoor’s domestic help Bajrangi and Narayan Singh, his common friend Sanjay Dewan, Praveen Kumar and Rajat Mohan (Cardiologist, Sir Ganga Ram Hospital) were questioned along with him and separately earlier in the day.
