New Delhi: The mystery of Sunanda Pushkar’s death has got a dramatic new twist. While the case remains hazy with no clear indication as to how former Union minister Shashi Tharoor’s wife died in a Delhi five-star hotel early this year, a top doctor of the All India Institute of Medical Sciences has sensationally alleged that he was ‘pressured’ to act in an ‘unprofessional manner’ to cover up the case.Dr. Sudhir Gupta, head of forensic sciences at AIIMS, has filed an affidavit, accessed by Aaj Tak, in the Central Administrative Tribunal (CAT) claiming that he was ‘pressured’ by former Union minister and president of AIIMS, Ghulam Nabi Azad, to act in an ‘unprofessional’ manner to cover up the matter.“(The) applicant could not muster courage of openly placing the facts in black and white as the former president of AIIMS Ghulam Nabi Azad was an immensely powerful politician and then the health minister and the husband of late Sunanda Pushkar was also a minister and a powerful politician,” the affidavit stated.
Pertinently, SunandaPushkar, wife of Union ministerShashi Tharoor, was found dead in a five-star hotel here in Delhi on 17 January 2014.
