Special Investigation Team (SIT) of Delhi Police on Saturday questioned Shashi Tharoor for over 5 hours in connection with his wife Sunanda Pushkar's death case. The Congress MP during questioning dismissed any foul play in the death case of his wife, a report in News Reports. Reportedly, throughout the probe Tharoor said he doesn't suspect foul play in death and claimed that Sunanda died due to medication. "Shashi Tharoor believes that his wife died due to medication," SIT sources said. He was also asked about the medicines taken by his wife.
Earlier, Delhi Police Commissioner BS Bassi had said that Sunanda Pushkar's death was not a natural one. "One thing is clear that the death was not natural. It was unnatural as per our investigation till now and evidences collected so far. I can say that with certainty," Delhi Police Commissioner Bassi had said.
In January 2015, Delhi Police had registered a case of murder in connection with the death of Sunanda. An AIIMS medical board had found poisoning as reason for her death following which the police had sent her viscera samples to an FBI lab in Washington in 2015. Sunanda was found dead inside her suite at a five-star hotel in New Delhi in January 2014, a day after she was involved in a spat with Pakistani journalist Mehr Tarar on Twitter over the latter's alleged affair with Shashi Tharoor, the Congress MP from Thiruvananthapuram.
