New Delhi : Congress MP Shashi Tharoor’s stepson Shiv Menon on Saturday moved the Delhi High Court opposing BJP leader Subramanian Swamy’s plea for a court-monitored CBI-led SIT probe into the death of Sunanda Pushkar.
The application on behalf of Menon, son of Pushkar from her earlier marriage, would be heard by the bench headed by Justice G S Sistani on July 24.
Senior advocate Vikas Pahwa moved the application on behalf of Menon in a pending petition filed by Swamy seeking probe in the death of Sunanda.
Menon is seeking to intervene on the ground that the BJP leader has no locus in the issue of his mother’s death.
Pushkar’s son urged the court to restrain Swamy and his lawyers from posting on social media, like Facebook and Twitter, the information about the instant case and its proceedings.
The application also seeks directions to Swamy and his lawyers not to share information about the investigation in the case with the media and the general public.
