NEW DELHI, Jan 10 � Delhi Police today said it is not going to question Congress MP Shashi Tharoor for now in connection with the mysterious death of his wife Sunanda Pushkar as it would first want to examine all other people related to the case and look into available evidence, reports PTI.

Investigators also said they have not come across any IPL cricket league angle in the case so far in the wake of some media reports suggesting this link.

�We have not called Tharoor for questioning as we do not need him at this moment. We would like to question all the other people in this connection, including his aides, the hotel�s staff among others. All the available evidences will also be gathered and it would be only after that we may question him,� said a senior police official.

Sunanda was found dead in a 5-star hotel in South Delhi on the night of January 17 last year, a day after her Twitter spat with Pakistani journalist Mehr Tarar over an alleged affair with Tharoor.

Initially, the Special Investigative Team formed in the case wanted to question Tharoor straightaway and a notice asking him to join the probe was also prepared, but it was not dispatched at the last moment as the police top brass decided to question everybody else before examining him.

�This approach will help us pose those questions to him which would arise during questioning of all these people related with the case,� the official said, adding that no IPL angle has come up in the case so far as speculated in the media.
