Tharoor had earlier in the day asked Union Home Minister Sushil Kumar Shinde to expedite the probe into his wife Sunanda’s death case to bring out the truth. He said he will fully co-operate with the investigation.
A day after Sunanda’s cremation, Tharoor said, “I am horrified to read the reckless speculation in the media regarding this case.”
Sources said that the SDM is likely to record statements of four or five people today and it includes family members and friends of Sunanda. On Saturday, two domestic aides of the couple were questioned and their statements were recorded.
Sources added that Sunanda was on anti- depressant drugs and the overdose of drugs is believed to be the most probable cause of her death.
Preliminary post-mortem report will be given by the All India Institute of Medical Sciences (AIIMS) to the SDM on Monday. The report called her death unnatural and sudden.
The post-mortem also revealed that she had not consumed any solid food. AIIMS Forensic Head Sudhir Gupta said, “Yes, she had a sudden unnatural death. We have preserved some samples for testing.”
However, the police and doctors have so far remained tightlipped about Sunanda’s death and are unwilling to comment on the cause of her death till the SDM completes his enquiry.
