The court also pulled up Delhi Police for delaying the de-sealing of the suite while referring to an order passed on July 21 by his predecessor asking it to de-seal the occupied premises within four weeks.

NEW DELHI: The Delhi Police on Monday told the Supreme Court that it will file its final report for the Sunanda Pushkar's death within a week's time.

Meanwhile, the Ministry of Home Affairs (MHA) has asked for more time to file its reply in the matter.

Wife of senior Congress leader, Shashi Tharoor, Sunanda Pushkar was found dead under mysterious circumstances in a suite of a five-star hotel in Delhi on the night of January 17, 2014.

On February 23, Tharoor said he was looking for a conclusion in his wife's death case.

Incidentally, on that day, Tharoor's statement came hours after the Supreme Court issued a notice to the Delhi Police on Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) leader Subramanian Swamy's appeal challenging the Delhi High Court order dismissing his plea for a Special Investigation Team (SIT) probe into Sunanda death case.
