Did Sunanda Pushkar, wife of UPA minister Shashi Tharoor had a natural death or a suicide or even a murder.
Dr Sudhir Gupta, head of the forensic department of All India institute of MedicalSciences (AIIMS) has stirred the hornet’s nest by claiming that he was pressured into giving a tailor-made report in the Sunanda Pushkar Tharoor death case. Dr Gupta has now written to the health ministry and the chief vigilance commission complaining that he was pressured by top officials to show it as a “natural death”. He has claimed that he is now being targeted because he did not bow to the pressure and gave a report stating that Sunanda’s death was caused by drug poisoning that could be both suicidal or homicidal.
Sunanda Pushkar had left a suicidal note which kicked up a row over Shashi Tharoor’s love affairs with a TV journalist of Pakistan and also subsequently how she had saved his skin from scandal in the IPL Kochi team affair.
