Sunanda Pushkar death case: SIT conducts polygraph test on six persons

Sunanda Pushkar

New Delhi, June 22: In connection with Sunanda Pushkar death case, the Special Investigation Team (SIT) of Delhi Police conducted polygraph test on six persons here on Monday.

Delhi Police Commissioner B.S. Bassi told the media: “Our investigation is continuing. During investigation, whatever requires to be done will be done. And so far, we have already carried out polygraph test on six persons. If there is any requirement, we will conduct further tests.”

Bassi further said: “Till the time we conclude our investigation, whatever is required will be done. The reports of the tests have not come yet.”

Sunanda, who married Congress leader Shashi Tharoor in 2010, had checked into The Leela Hotel in Chanakyapuri a day before her death on January 17, 2014.

Prior to her death, Sunanda Pushkar was embroiled in a spat with Pakistani journalist Meher Tarar, whom she accused of stalking her husband.

Initially, her death was debated as a possible suicide for months, but later murder theory began to be considered seriously after doctors at the All India Institute of Medical Sciences (AIIMS) maintained that her demise was unnatural.

Shashi Tharoor has been demanding that the investigation must be “free of political pressure or a pre-determined outcome.”
