Former Union Minister Shashi Tharoor on Wednesday refused to answer media queries on the allegations made in the autopsy case of his wife Sunanda Pushkar.

According to media reports, the head of the forensics department at All India Institute of Medical Sciences (AIIMS), Dr. Sudhir Gupta, has said that he was pressurised to give a doctored report in Pushkar's death case.

Gupta headed the team of experts who conducted the postmortem on Pushkar's body. He has alleged in his complaint to the Health Ministry and the Chief Vigilance Commission (CVC) that he was pressured by top officials to show that Pushkar's death was 'natural'.

Gupta claimed that he did not bow to the pressure and stated in his report that Pushkar died due to drug poisoning, which could be 'suicidal or homicidal'.
