Domestic help grilled in Pushkar murder case


New Delhi: Sunanda Pushkar’s murder case takes a new turn with the domestic help of Shashi and Sunanda briefing the police about about some mysterious sunil who had visited Pushkar on January 15 at Leela hotel and helped her in tweeting allegations against her husband.

According to reports, Narayan Singh, the domestic help said that the mysterious ‘Sunil Saab’ had visited the deceased on that day and went inside the room with Pushkar and began tweeting data and copying data from it. She had tweeted from her as well as Tharoor’s twitter account accusing Pakistani journalist Meher Tarar of interfering in their marriage.

No concrete evidence was found to support the statement of the domestic help regarding the mysterious visitor. Tharoor, who is presently in Kerala, will be flying to Delhi to meet the officials of the Special Investigation Team probing the case of his wife’s murder.

The domestic help was interrogated by the SIT on Thursday and was asked to reveal the details about the people who used to meet her and she was in touch with through mails and twitter.

Singh’s interrogation comes a day after a letter written by Tharoor to Delhi Police commissioner in November last year surfaced in the forefront. In the letter Tharoor had alleged that the investigators were ‘assaulting’ and ‘compelling’ Singh into ‘confessing’ that they both had killed Pushkar.

Singh was also asked whether Pushkar was on any medication or was suffering from any ailments. According to sources, Tharoor’s personal staff and the employees of the hotel will also be interrogated by the police.

Police have registered a case of murder under section 302 of the IPC after AIIMS medical team reported that her death was due to poisoning.
