New Delhi, Jan 22:

Delhi Police Commissioner B.S. Bassi said Thursday the police team probing the murder of Congress MP Shashi Tharoor’s wife Sunanda Pushkar will talk to the journalists who had spoken to her before her death.

Sunanda Pushkar“We will take the help of those journalists who had talked to Sunanda before her death to understand the sequence of events,” Bassi told media.

“Our SIT (Special Investigation Team) will complete the talks with the journalists within one or two days. We are investigating this case with an open mind. Whatever appears relevant is not going to be left out,” Bassi said.

On being asked if Tharoor will be questioned again, Bassi said: “We are analysing Tharoor’s reply in his first round of questioning. If we need, he will be called for questioning within a few days. We will take all necessary steps.”

A five-member SIT team — including a deputy commissioner of police, an additional deputy commissioner, an assistant commissioner and two inspectors — questioned Tharoor Jan 19 for over four hours at Vasant Vihar police station.

Replying to a question if police have reached any conclusion, Bassi said: “Our investigation is going on. Whenever we reach any conclusion, we immediately share the information briefly with media.”

Bassi said the SIT team is in the process of sending Sunanda’s viscera report to a foreign lab and the electronic gadgets recovered from the spot are being analysed.

Pushkar was found dead in a luxury hotel room here Jan 17, 2014. Police have said she was poisoned to death. A murder case against unknown people was registered by police Jan 1 this year. IANS
