New Delhi: Suspecting foul play in the death of Sunanda Pushkar, BJP leader Subramanian Swamy, Wednesday, announced that will file a public interest litigation (PIL) demanding court-monitored probe in the case.


The move to file PIL comes after Swamy had sent a legal notice to the government to expedite investigation into the mysterious death of lawmaker Shashi Tharoor`s wife, alleging involvement of few politicians.


He had earlier claimed that there was evidence that Sunanda was murdered using Russian poison, adding that he had the proof to support his charges.
The noted lawyer also claimed that she was killed by the Dubai mafia to prevent her from exposing the money laundering in the IPL.


Sunanda`s death mystery took another turn after the head of AIIMS forensic department, Sudhir Gupta, who had performed autopsy on her body, claimed that he was pressurised by two UPA ministers to make a report saying that Pushkar`s death was a normal one.
52-year-old Sunanda Pushkar was found dead in a New Delhi hotel in January 2014 after she sent out tweets suggesting that her husband was involved in an affair with a Pakistan-based journalist.
