New Delhi: With reports claiming that Congress leader Shashi Tharoor could be subjected to a lie detector test in connection with the death of his wife Sunanda Pushkar, Delhi Police Commissioner B.S Bassi on Thursday said that it was upto SIT to take a call on it.
“If the SIT deems fit they will go in for lie detector test of anybody and everybody,” Bassi told the media here.
Bassi further said that The Medical Board of AIIMS has provided us the FBI report with their opinion and that the police will be taking action only after all the reports are considered.
As per reports, Tharoor’s driver and help Bajrangi and Narain Singh, family friend Sanjay Dewan and the doctor, who had examined Sunanda, are being questioned.
In January last year, the Delhi Police had registered a case of murder in connection with Sunanda’s death. An AIIMS medical board had found poisoning as the reason for her death following which the police had sent her viscera samples to an FBI lab in the US.
Sunanda, who married Tharoor in 2010, was found dead under mysterious circumstances inside a room at the Leela Palace Hotel in Delhi on January 17, 2014. (ANI)
