In a major trouble to Congress leader Shashi Tharoor, the Delhi Police on Monday filed a charge sheet accusing him of abetting the suicide of his wife Sunanda Pushkar.

The charge sheet was filed before Metropolitan Magistrate Dharmender Singh, who will consider it on May 24. The Congress leader has been charged under sections 498A (husband or his relative subjecting a woman to cruelty) and 306 (abetment of suicide) of the Indian Penal Code.

Tharoor termed the Delhi Police’s action “unbelievable” and called the chargesheet “preposterous”. He said he will contest the 3,000 -page chargesheet “vigorously”.

"I have taken note of the filing of this preposterous charge sheet &intend to contest it vigorously. No one who knew Sunanda believes she would ever have committed suicide, let alone abetment on my part. If this is conclusion arrived at after 4+ yrs of investigation, it does not speak well of the methods or motivations of the Delhi Police. In oct 17, the Law Officer made a statement in the DelhiHighCourt that they have not found anything against anyone & now in 6 months they say that I have abetted a suicide.  unbelievable!" Tharoor wrote on Twitter. 

Sunanda Pushkar was found dead in a luxury hotel room in New Delhi on January 17, 2014.
