After the death of Sunanda Pushkar, the wife of Congress MP Shashi Tharoor, the controversy took new twist. On Friday her cousin Ashok Kumar said to the reporters “We already knew it wasn’t a natural death. It was all planned and we had been asking for CBI’s probe. We knew that day when they went to stay in the hotel, this was planned earlier. Why would he (Shashi Tharoor) go for a meeting when she wasn’t feeling well? Even cameras weren’t working in such a big hotel. It was all planned beforehand.”
Kumar demanded a Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) probe into the incident, seeking justice for Pushkar.
Delhi Police Commissioner Bassi has rejected the report, saying, the available forensic evidence is not conclusive. The Delhi police are competent enough to find the truth.
The leaked report said that the AIIMS medical board “had thoroughly pursued the various documents that were submitted to them by the investigating officers along with the post-mortem report and histopathology report of viscera after which it was concluded the cause of Pushkar’s death is poisoning”.
