The Special Investigating Team (SIT) of the Delhi police questioned former Samajwadi Party leader Amar Singh for about two hours in connection with the alleged murder of Sunanda Pushkar, wife of Congress leader Shashi Tharoor.

Singh was questioned on the basis of his claims related to the case. He had claimed that Pushkar had called him on 15 January 2014, two days before her mysterious death and shared some information with him about the Indian Premier League (IPL).

"Amar Singh had claimed and also shared some information with the media. We are trying to ascertain the facts from him," Delhi Police chief told reporters on Wednesday, reports The Times of India.

But Singh refused to share information on the nature of questions posed to him or his response. "My statement now is a part of police investigations, I can't say any thing more on the issue. The police will clear the air on the issue," he said.

Few days ago, two journalists who were Pushkar's friends were questioned in connection with the alleged murder of Pushkar. The journalists said that Pushkar had called them and spoke about "exposing Shashi Tharoor" in the context of IPL.
