A team of AIIMS doctors has submitted a fresh report to police on the mysterious death of Sunanda, wife of former union minister Shashi Tharoor, maintaining that she died of poisoning.
"If there is a new report then there should be an inquiry into it," the Parliamentary Affairs Minister said when asked to comment on the fresh inquiry report suggesting Sunanda died of poisoning.

The report by the three-member panel of doctors, who had conducted the autopsy on her, was prepared on the basis of the findings of the Central Forensic Science Laboratory (CFSL) which had examined Sunanda's viscera, sources said.

They said the team had again concluded like it did in its first report that her kidney, liver and heart were functioning normally and that her death was caused by poisoning.

Sunanda was found dead in a 5-star hotel in South Delhi on the night of January 17, a day after her Twitter spat with Pakistani journalist Mehr Tarar over an alleged affair with Tharoor.

The probe into the case was handed over to the Crime Branch on January 23. However, the case was transferred back to the South District police two days later on January 25.

CPI-M demands comprehensive probe into Sunanda's death

CPI-M in Kerala demanded a comprehensive probe into the death of Sunanda Pushkar, wife of former Union Minister Shashi Tharoor, in the wake of fresh autopsy report that she died of poisoning.

"An uncertainty existed till now from the time of death of Sunanda and what had happened has to come out," party State Secretary Pinarayi Vijyan told reporters here.

People of the country have the right to know the truth, Vijayan said, adding, "that is why a detailed probe is necessary".

The leaked autopsy report

The recently  leaked autopsy report states that the traces of the drug alprax, which was found in her body, was not enough of a lethal dose to kill her.

According to reports, it also states that Sunanda was not suffering from Lupus (a chronic inflammatory disease that occurs when the body’s immune system attacks tissues and organs) as claimed by her husband Shashi Tharoor.

The report further demolished several previous findings that claimed Sunanda was not suffering from any ailments and that she was healthy and had no disease of heart, kidney, liver or lung.

The leaked report said that the AIIMS medical board "had thoroughly pursued the various documents that were submitted to them by the investigating officers along with the post mortem report and histopathology report of viscera after which it was concluded the cause of Pushkar's death was poisoning".

"Viscera are positive for ethyl alcohol, caffeine, acetaminophen and cotinine," it said.

The document also revealed that the medical report reserved comment on the specific poison or chemical responsible since there were a lot of limitations on the viscera report.
