Delhi police begin Questioning Journalists in Sunanda Pushkar Death Case


New Delhi, Jan 22: The Delhi police on Thursday have started questioning some journalists associated with Sunanda Pushkar, who allegedly died of poisoning last year. The investigation is on to solve the mysterious death of Sunanda, wife of former Union Minister Shashi Tharoor.

The SIT of Delhi police is asking one male and two female journalists, who had communicated with Sunanda hours before her death on January 17, 2014. The police are investigating from each angle including the IPL controversy and Mehr Tarar that could have led to the death of Sunanda.

There are allegations made by some journalists that Sunanda was upset with her husband hashi Tharoor for his behaviour towards her and he allegedly had an affair with Pakistani journalist Mehr Tarar.

Sunanda, 51, was about to hold a press conference on January 17 to reportedly expose her husband in the IPL controversy. However, she was found dead on that day in a five star hotel.

While the initial autopsy report termed the case as suicide, the recent medical report by the AIIMS claimed that Sunanda died of poisoning and the poison could have been injected or forcefully given to her.

Police have already asked Shashi Tharoor in this case and seem to be satisfied with his answers. However, he could be examined for second time.
