The Congress leader moved an application in his pending lawsuit, seeking direction to the journalist and the news channel that they should not mention the expression “murder of Sunanda Pushkar” anywhere since it is yet to be established by a competent court that her death was “murder” to ensure the trial was not prejudiced.
Tharoor, in his application filed through his counsel Gaurav Gupta, sought the court’s direction to restrain the channel and Goswami from posting or reporting any content which is contrary to the assurance given by their counsel.
Pushkar was found dead in a suite of a five-star hotel in South Delhi on the night of January 17, 2014. The matter is still under investigation.
