Sunanda Pushkar's mysterious death: New twists and turns surface
Head of forensic department at All India Institute of Medical Sciences (AIIMS), Dr. Sudhir Gupta has alleged that he was pressurized to give a tailor-made report in Sunanda Pushkar Tharoor's death case. Sunanda Pushkar was the wife of former Union minister Sashi Tharoor. She was found dead in a suit of South Delhi's Leela Hotel on January 17 this year.

Dr. Gupta who headed the team of forensic experts and has conducted the postmortem of Sunanda Pushkar has written a letter to the Union health minister Dr. Harsh Vardhan and the Chief Vigilance Commission, saying that he was pressurized by the top officials to make over the postmortem report and show the cause of death as natural one. But Dr. Gupta did not bow to the pressure and stated that the death was caused by drug poisoning which could be suicidal or homicidal.

Acting on the charges made by Dr. Gupta, as per the latest reports coming in to the media, the health ministry has sought an explanation from AIIMS Director MC Mishra on the entire issue.

Vardhan told the media persons, "Dr Gupta had given a letter related to his promotion but media reported that there was a specific allegation in his letter. I have asked the AIIMS director for a report."

Dr. Gupta has further alleged in his letter that since he didn't bow under the pressure, he has been targeted by the AIIMS authorities and a conspiracy is being hatched to oust him from the post of head of the forensic department.

Meanwhile BJP leader Subramanian Swamy on Wednesday alleged that Sunanda Pushkar Tharoor was killed in a professional way. Swamy said that he would file a petition seeking a investigative probe by the Apex Court into the mysterious death of Sunanda Pushkar.

As quoted by some news channels, Swamy said that Sunanda had threaten to expose something about IPL deals which could have resulted into surfacing of Sonia Gandhi's son-in-law Robert Vadra's name.
