New Delhi: In a fresh twist in the Sunanda Pushkar death case, the Delhi Police have now added another angle to the investigation.

As per sources, the police are now on the lookout for three 'fake' hotel guests who the sleuths believe stayed in the same hotel where Sunanda was murdered.

Police have reportedly got leads that the trio stayed in the hotel on the night the wife of former union minister Shashi Tharoor was murdered, using false passports.

The development came in the wake of reports that the police had sought the list of air travellers who flew from Dubai and Pakistan to Delhi, and vice versa, on January 17 — the day Sunanda was found dead in the room of a five-star hotel here.

All this indicates that the police now believe an outsider may have played a role in Sunanda's death.

The police is now planning to send an ACP to Dubai to probe the angle further.

Also, the police is believed to be mulling sending Sunanda's viscera abroad for tests in a foreign lab. This follows the failure of the CFSL and doctors to zero in on what led to Sunanda's death.

Delhi Police Commissioner BS Bassi, meanwhile, today told reporters on the status of the probe: “Investigation is going on, information will be given once we reach a conclusion.
