New Delhi: Investigators probing the mysterious death of Sunanda Pushkar may again question Congress MP Shashi Tharoor and move court soon seeking lie detector test on him even as a long-awaited FBI report of her viscera samples said she died of poison.
Sources in Delhi police said court’s permission to conduct a polygraph test on Tharoor was likely to be sought soon as the investigators were trying to take the high-profile case to a logical conclusion.
The investigators have so far conducted polygraph test on six persons, all prime witnesses in the case, including Tharoors’ domestic help Narayan Singh, driver Bajrangi and Sanjay Dewan, a close friend of the couple.
Tharoor was not subjected to the test but was questioned thrice in the case. 52-year-old Sunanda was found dead in a five-star hotel suite on January 17 last year, a day after she was involved in a spat with Pakistani journalist Mehr Tarar on Twitter over the latter’s alleged affair with Tharoor.
The sources said Tharoor is likely to be questioned again as the eight-page FBI report of Sunanda’s viscera broght to fore certain details crucial to the probe. The police will soon submit the report to court.
