New Delhi: The Delhi Police on Friday refuted reports that it has written to the Pakistan High Commission here, asking it to facilitate the questioning of journalist Mehr Tarar in the Sunanda Pushkar murder case.
“We haven't established any contact with the Pakistani High Commissioner regarding questioning of Mehr Tarar. These reports are untrue,” said Delhi Police Commissioner BS Bassi.
“As far as examining of Mehr Tarar is concerned, it will be done if required,” Bassi added.
The Delhi Police had earlier said that it may question the Pakistani journalist over whom Sunanda fought with her husband Shashi Tharoor before her death last year.
"If required, we will speak to her as she is a relevant person who can throw light in the case. Our efforts will be to talk to her," Bassi had said earlier when asked whether the Special Investigation Team probing the case will examine her.
Tarar had earlier said that she was ready to answer any question on the issue.
"If they want to ask me anything...If they want to ask me any question whatsoever that they think...I can answer," 46-year-old Tarar had said a day after Delhi Police had registered a murder case into Sunanda's death.
52-year-old Sunanda was found dead in her suite at a five-star hotel in south Delhi on the night of January 17 last year, a day after she was involved in a spat with Tarar on microblogging website Twitter over the latter's alleged affair with Tharoor.
Tharoor was questioned by the investigators last month.
