Sunanda Pushkar death case: Subramanian Swamy to file PIL soon

New Delhi: Senior BJP leader Subramanian Swamy on Thursday said that he will soon file Public Interest Litigation (PIL) in Congress MP Shashi Tharoor's wife Sunanda Pushkar's death case.

Taking to Twitter, Swamy wrote that his team has finalised PIL on Sunanda's murder and he will file it when he will be next in Delhi after January 17.

The Delhi Police in November had shared the findings of an FBI report that virtually rules out the theory of 'polonium poisoning' causing her death.

“Radiation levels in Sunanda Pushkar's viscera samples were "within the standard safety norms",” Delhi Police had said.

According to sources, the FBI report, received nine months after the samples were sent for examination, has named the alleged poison that led to Sunanda's death two year's ago.

The viscera samples were sent to the FBI lab in Washington in February to determine the kind of poison that killed her after an AIIMS medical board identified poisoning as the reason behind her death but did not mention any specific name.

Reacting to the developments, AIIMS forensic head Sudhir Gupta stuck to his opinion that poisoning was the cause of death.
