Sunanda Pushkar murder: Police to quiz Tharoor’s employees again

New Delhi: The Delhi Police have re-examined Congress leader Shashi Tharoor's domestic help Narayan Singh and driver Bajrangi in light of the AIIMS medical board's opinion on the FBI report in connection with the death of Sunanda Pushkar.

According to reports, the Special Investigation Team (SIT) questioned Singh, Bajrangi and around a dozen chemists in and around Tharoor's bungalow in Lodhi Estate.

The AIIMS medical board unanimously concluded that Sunnada died of poisoning with the presence of anti-anxiety drug Alprax in her stomach.

The board however did not rule out the possibility of any injectable poison, in view of a particular mark on Sunanda's body and said that the FBI report confirmed the presence of lidocaine in her body.

The Delhi Police registered a case of murder against unknown persons in January last year in connection with the death of Sunanda Pushkar.
