Sunanda Pushkar’s body had injury marks, death unnatural: Doctor

Sunanda-Pushkar-TharoorUnion Minister Shashi Tharoor’s wife Sunanda Pushkar, who died Friday night, had “injury marks” on her body and it is a “case of unnatural, sudden death”, one of the doctors who conducted the autopsy said.

“On post mortem examination we can say that it is a case of unnatural sudden death. There were certain injury marks on the body but we can’t divulge details at this point,” said Sudhir Kumar Gupta, a doctor.

“We will conclude our report and opinion in a couple of days,” he added.

Sunanda Pushkar was found dead under mysterious circumstances in her room at The Leela Palace hotel in south Delhi Friday.

Her death came barely 24 hours after she and Shashi Tharoor declared they were “happily married” following public airing of tweets that hinted at an extra-marital relationship and alleged involvement of a Pakistani woman.
