New Delhi: Delhi Police Commissioner B.S. Bassi said Wednesday AIIMS forensic department head Sudhir Gupta will be examined if necessary and his affidavit brought on record. Gupta says he was pressurised to declare as “natural” the death in January of Sunanda Pushkar, the wife of Congress MP Shashi Tharoor.
“If it is necessary to examine Sudhir Gupta, he will be examined and if it is necessary his affidavit which apparently has been filed by him before the learned Central Administrative Tribunal (CAT) will also be brought on record,” Bassi told the media.
“Whatever is relevant, we will be conducting inquiries keeping in view the legal position of the relevance of the evidence,” he added.
Pushkar was found dead in her room at a five-star hotel in Delhi Jan 17.
Gupta has moved the CAT fearing he would be replaced.
