The Supreme Court was moved on Friday for a NIA probe into the circumstances leading to the death of Sunanda Pushkar, wife of former union minister Shashi Tharoor, on the grounds of an alleged ISI dimension to the case.
The controversy over Sunanda Pushkar’s mysterious death seems to be deepening, with reports on Tuesday saying that All India Institute of Medical Science (AIIMS) doctor Sudhir Gupta has claimed that he was pressurised to give a tailor made report in the case.
Demanding a court-monitored investigation in the Sunanda Pushkar Tharoor`s death case, Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) leader Subramanian Swamy on Sunday said that he will be filing a PIL within the next four weeks.
The Crime Branch probing the mysterious death of Sunanda Pushkar will go for advanced forensic tests to determine cause of injuries on her body as it tries to unravel whether it was a case of suicide, homicide or accident.
Hours after the autopsy report of Sunanda Pushkar was out and given to the Sub-Divisional Magistrate Alok Sharma by AIIMS stating drug overdose may have caused her death, Minister of State for Human Resource Development Shashi Tharoor got a clean chit into the matter based on a witness testimony, police sources said on Monday.
unanda was apparently disturbed over the alleged relationship between her husband and Pakistani journalist Meht Tarar, whom she accused of hitting on Shahsi Tharoor while she was away for medical check up.
Peeved at being at the centre of controversy surrounding Shashi Tharoor, Pakistani journalist Mehr Tarar claimed she had no role in his marital discord with Sunanda Pushkar and was a "victim of conspiracy".
