The domestic helper of Shashi Tharoor came up with new revelations in the murder case of Sunanda Pushkar on Friday, bringing in a new twist to the case.
According to Narain’s statement to the police, Sunanda has told him that if she speaks everything to the media, “Tharoor will be finished.” While her words did not give any clue on what she was referring to, Narain said that Sunanda and Pushkar had a fight when they were in Dubai.
Meanwhile, Narain has also said that a person named Sunil, whom he referred as “Sunil sahib” had been with her at the hotel two days before her death. Narain revealed that it is Sunil who helped Sunanda to send messages in twitter. However, this seems to be a new turning point in the case.
Amid, Shashi Tharoor has filed a complaint to the commissioner stating that his helper Narain has been “repeatedly physically assaulted by one of your officers. Worse, that officer used the traumatic physical assault to try and intimidate Narayan into ‘confessing’ that he and I murdered my wife.” Narain has been interrogated by the police twice earlier, after Sunanda’s death.
However, Tharoor has told the commissioner that they (Tharoor and Narain) were ready for any inquiry and investigation.
Meanwhile, apart from the new information, the Delhi Police is likely to focus on the injury marks on her body too. The injection mark (injury 10), which is out of the 15 marks mentioned by the doctors in the autopsy report, is considered to be a key factor in the further investigation.
Sunanda was found dead in her room on January 17 in Hotel Leela Palace in New Delhi. Her death was confirmed as murder by Delhi Police on January 6, 2015. The final autopsy report said, “The poisoning is through oral route, however injectable route too also can’t be ruled out.”
However, once the death was registered as a case of murder, the police said that her viscera samples will be sent to a forensic laboratory in US or UK for tests.
