Sunanda Pushkar case: Shashi Tharoor was in AIIMS when her post-mortem was conducted, claims Swamy
Sunanda was found dead inside her suite at a five-star hotel here in January 2014.
New Delhi: Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) MP Subramanian Swamy on Tuesday yet again pointed fingers at Congress MP Shashi Tharoor in connection with Sunanda Pushkar death case.
The firebrand BJP leader tweeted a report of All India Institute Of Medical Science which says that Tharoor was admitted to AIIMS on 18-01-2014. Notably, his wife's post-mortem was done on the same date in the premier institute.
With his tweet, Swamy questioned whether Tharoor was admitted to AIIMS on the same day to make Sunanda's death "natural".

The Rajya Sabha member has been pushing for speedy investigation into the case.
Sunanda was found dead inside her suite at a five-star hotel here in January 2014, a day after she was involved in a spat with Pakistani journalist Mehr Tarar on Twitter over the latter's alleged affair with Tharoor, the Congress MP from Thiruvananthapuram.
Her viscera samples were sent to the FBI lab in Washington DC in February last year to determine the kind of poison that killed her after an AIIMS medical board identified poisoning as the reason behind her death.
The FBI had endorsed the AIIMS report on poisoning and also said that a "dangerous chemical" was present in her body that may have killed her.
