Sunanda Pushkar death case: Shashi Tharoor evades media; likely to be questioned by SIT soon

New Delhi: Congress MP Shashi Tharoor on Saturday dodged questions of media on the latest findings in his wife Sunanda Pushkar's death case.

When asked for his reactions on the developments in the case, Tharoor chose to avoid making any statement.

As per some media reports, the Special Investigation Team (SIT), which is probing the case, may soon question Tharoor once again.
 

According to the AIIMS Panel, which is headed by Dr Sudhir Gupta, the head of the Department of Forensics, Pushkar died after being poisoned by Polonimum-210 or Po-210, sources state.

The Delhi Police had submitted a 15-page Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) report to AIIMS Medical Board for further opinion.

 

Sunanda Pushkar, 51, was found dead at the Leela Hotel in New Delhi in January 2014.

 

Pushkar's viscera samples were sent to the FBI lab in Washington in February last year after a panel of doctors from AIIMS said that the alleged 'poison' could not be detected in Indian labs.
