NEW DELHI: A day after a forensic doctor from the capital-based All India Institute of Medical Sciences (AIIMS) claimed he was under pressure to tweak former minister Shashi Tharoor’s wife Sunanda Pushkar’s autopsy report to portray it as a case of ‘natural death’, more startling facts in the case have tumbled out, indicating it was not a “simple” case of suicide, as previous believed.

Officers, who had investigated the case, told ‘Express’ that the “most mysterious and shocking fact” was traces of her urine found on the bed in a Delhi hotel room, where she was found dead. “In normal circumstances and even in cases of drug overdose, there was no question of Pushkar urinating on her bed. One will urinate only due to shock from a surprise and forceful attack,” said the officer.

He added that there was a fresh injection mark on her body and that clearly looked fishy.

BJP leader Subramanian Swamy has written to Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Thursday seeking a CBI probe into the case.

Swamy linked Pushkar’s death with the alleged IPL money laundering row and insisted that she was murdered in a planned manner. He said that Pushkar was allegedly aware of “too much” details.

He said that if a special investigative team under the CBI is not set up to probe Sunanda’s death, then he will move the court.
