"Despite statements by us at the time that we suspected neither suicide nor foul play, some elements of the media and individuals with vested interests have continued to pursue the angle of alleged poisoning, to our distress`, the statement said.
"Now that the leaked viscera report has apparently concluded that there was no poison in Sunanda`s system, as we always believed, we request all concerned to stop their unfounded speculation over her death`, the statement said.

We urge the police to conclude their investigations at the earliest so that she can rest in peace" the statement added.
