Sunanda Pushkar case: Officer part of initial probe team to return
One of the officers who was part of the team handling the initial probe into the Sunanda Pushkar murder case might join the SIT again even as senior officials said an order is awaited in this regard.
The SIT is preparing a report on the status of the probe and submit it to senior officers.
“With the transfer of officers, the SIT has seen a lot of re-jigging. One of the inspectors, who was initially part of the SIT and was later transferred to another wing of the Delhi Police, might come back to the SIT.
“A recommendation has been made, but no formal orders have been issued yet. There are chances that the orders might come soon,” a source said.
Police have been sending reminders to Canada’s Department of Justice seeking details of the deleted chats from mobile phones of Pushkar and her husband, Congress leader Shashi Tharoor, and a team is likely to be sent there.
Last month, the city police had written to Enforcement Directorate to probe the financial irregularities related to the now-defunct Kochi IPL franchise as part of its ongoing investigation into the murder case.
