Subramanian Swamy calls for proper investigation in Sunanda Pushkar's death

Wednesday, 2 July 2014 - 12:53pm IST | Agency: ANI

Commenting on the allegations made in the Sunanda Pushkar's autopsy report case, Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) leader Subramanian Swamy on Wednesday reiterated that Pushkar was murdered and called for proper investigation in the case.

"I have been saying this from the beginning that she was murdered by a professional gang. There should be proper investigations in this case as there are certain new aspects which have come out and which strongly indicate that she was murdered," Swamy told ANI.

Swamy said that Pushkar had told people that she will expose the corruption in IPL. "How come a person is cremated in the next 24 hours from death and without the matter being settled?" he asked. He further said that it was strange that Tharoor was admitted in the AIIMS Hospital when the autopsy was about to be conducted on Pushkar's body.

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 pressurized 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'.
