"The report cannot be made public at least till the time we send it to the court," said Delhi Police Commissioner BS Bassi.

Even as the report was reviewed by a panel of the senior-most police officials today, Bassi added that the Special Investigation Team (SIT) that has been set up to probe the case has not yet been handed over the report for analysis.

Analysis of the report shall take time and, even after submission in court, it shall only be shared once all the legal issues connected with it have been studied, the top cop said.

Radiation levels in the viscera samples of Pushkar, wife of Congress MP Shashi Tharoor, were "within the standard safety norms", Delhi Police had said yesterday as they shared the findings of the FBI report.

Bassi had said that the report from the Washington D.C. based laboratory would be soon handed over to a medical board for examination before further action is taken in the case. Sources in police had said that SIT is likely to summon Tharoor again for questioning. They are also likely to seek court's permission to conduct a polygraph test on the former Union minister.

According to sources, the eight-page FBI report, received via e-mail around nine months after the samples were sent for examination, has named the alleged poison that led to Sunanda's death two years ago.

The viscera samples were sent to the FBI lab in February to determine the kind of poison that may have killed her after an AIIMS medical board identified poisoning as the reason behind her death but did not mention any specific substance.
