Delhi Police Wednesday questioned former Samajwadi Party leader Amar Singh in connection with its ongoing probe into the murder of Sunanda Pushkar, wife of Congress MP Shashi Tharoor. Singh was questioned at south Delhi’s Vasant Vihar Police station for around two hours. Amar Singh told media that he was questioned by the Special Investigating Team (SIT) of Delhi Police for around two hours following his earlier statement.
