New Delhi, January 29 – Congress MP Shashi Tharoor on Wednesday said his “faith in truth” was “sustaining” him as police probe the Sunanda Pushkar murder case. “My faith in the truth sustains me,” Tharoor told India Today Group Consulting Editor Rajdeep Sardesai in an exclusive interview.
Tharoor, who was questioned by Delhi Police some days ago in connection with his wife’s murder case, said he was “cooperating with police”. “I’m fully cooperating with the probeâ€¦ I can’t say anything till the probe gets over,” he said to a question.
Asked he felt himself as a victim of media trial, Tharoor said: “I’m answering the questions of police, not self-appointed media judges, prosecutors and executioners”.
“I’m a bereaved husband, who has not been allowed to mourn,” he said. He said he was himself “a child of the media”. “I’m myself am a child of the media. My father worked for newspapers and magazines. I spent a lot of time in the UN standing up for freedom of the press,” he said.
