New Delhi: After a shocking revelation of Delhi Police that Sunanda Pushkar, who was found dead in mysterious circumstances in a five-star hotel last year in Delhi, was murdered by poisoning, Congress leader and husband Shashi Tharoor reacted and stated that he was “stunned”. “I am anxious to see this case is investigated thoroughly and continue to assure the police of my full co-operation.”
On December 29, the AIIMS medical report submitted to the Delhi Police told that the death occurred due to poisoning but did not determine the nature of the poison.
Delhi Police Commissioner BS Bassi said, “We registered the murder case on the basis of a medical report which says that poison consumed by the victim was the cause of death. Poison was either given orally or injected in the body.”
“We will interrogate and investigate whosoever required,” Mr Bassi said. Tharoor would also be questioned in the case.
Following the recent reports emerged out in Sunanda case, the Special Investigation Team (SIT) probe has been ordered in the case, Bassi said.
He further added that the viscera samples are now being sent to a laboratory abroad to find out which poison was used.
On January 17 last year, Sunanda Pushkar, the wife of Shashi Tharoor, was found dead in a five-star hotel in Delhi.
Just a day before her death, she had a verbal war with a Pakistani journalist of having an affair with Shashi Tharoor.

The Congress has stepped up the demand of immediately scrapping the farm laws in the wake of the farmers’ protest in the national capital. Congress leader Rahul Gandhi said in a tweet,”Accepting less than scrapping of three black farm laws will be deceit to farmers and the country.”

The Congress leader’s reaction comes even as the meeting between the farmers and the government is going on to resolve the issue.

Talks between the Centre and over 34 farmer union representatives has started here, even as the farmers protest entered the eighth straight day with thousands sitting on different Delhi borders blocking essential supply chains to the city.

Like the previous round of talks held on December 1, Union Agriculture Minister Narendra Tomar and Consumer Affairs, Food and Public Distribution Minister Piyush Goyal are leading the meeting, which is expected to play a major role in farmers’ future course of action on whether they would continue the protest or withdraw it.

The Bharatiya Kisan Union, Bharatiya Kisan Sanyukta Morcha and Krantikari Kisan Union are among over the 34 farm union representatives taking part in the meeting, which started around 12.30 p.m.

The fourth round of meetings with the farmer leaders started at Vigyan Bhawan after the earlier talks remained inconclusive on December 1.

In the last meeting, the farmers’ representatives had unanimously rejected the Centre’s proposal of a special committee to resolve concerns over the farm laws.
