New Delhi, July 5 (IANS) A court here on Thursday granted anticipatory bail to Congress MP Shashi Tharoor in a case related to the death of his wife Sunanda Pushkar.

Additional Sessions Judge Arvind Kumar allowed his anticipatory bail plea asking him to furnish a bond of Rs 1 lakh.

Delhi Police has opposed Tharoor’s plea.

On June 5, the court took cognizance of the charge-sheet filed by the police in the case.
