Delhi Police's Special Investigation Team (SIT) on Thursday interrogated Congress Parliamentarian Shashi Tharoor once again in connection with his wife Sunanda Pushkar's murder. This was almost three weeks after he was first interrogated for nearly four hours on 19 February.

Tharoor was asked to come over to the SIT office at Vasant Vihar in South Delhi for clarifications on certain evidences collected in the last few days.

In the first round of interrogation on 19 February, SIT had grilled him on his alleged extra-marital affairs with Pakistani journalist Mehr Tarar. During the interrogation, Tharoor had accepted that their married life was troubled.

Shashi Tharoor and a few others were summoned on Thursday. Based on the evidences collected till now, we needed clarification on some points," ANI quoted Delhi Police Commissioner BS Bassi as saying.

Along with Tharoor, several others, including his staff members and close friends were also quizzed by SIT on Thursday afternoon. Tharoor's son Shiv Menon was questioned last week.

On 17 January 2014, 52-year-old Pushkar was found dead under mysterious circumstances in a suite of Leela Palace Hotel in Delhi. Initially the police suspected it to be a suicide case but after the AIIMS doctors who conducted the autopsy submitted the final report, Delhi police filed a murder case.
