The Supreme Court on Friday sought the response of the Delhi Police on a plea filed by BJP leader Subramanian Swamy seeking an SIT probe into the death of Congress MP Shashi Tharoor's wife Sunanda Pushkar.

Pushkar was found dead under mysterious circumstances in a suite of a Delhis five-star hotel on the night of January 17, 2014.

New research debunks medical marijuana myths
In 1996, California became the first USA state to legalise marijuana use for medical purposes. As it turns out, neither has proven to be true, according to new research.

Dr Swami has moved the apex court after the Delhi high court had in October past year rejected the plea for a probe by a court-monitored Special Investigation Team (SIT) observing that being a politician he has no locus standi to file such a petition. The court has said while dismissing Swamy's petition that it was not satisfied that it could be entertained as a PIL (Public Interest Litigation).

In his petition before the High Court, Swamy had said there has been constant attempt to block the investigation and alleged that the registration of an FIR took nearly a year and nothing has happened after that. Anything that Delhi Police conveys to Court about how they have conducted their investigation, where it stands is welcome to us. Swamy had earlier told the apex court that he had filed numerous PILs on various issues and his petition on Sunanda's death should also be heard on merit.
