New Delhi: Congress leader Shashi Tharoor’s wife Sunanda Pushkar did not commit suicide but was murdered, Delhi Police chief B.S. Bassi said on Tuesday.

“We have got the final medical report from AIIMS, and we have been told that it was an unnatural death,” Bassi told the media.

“She died due to poisoning. Whether the poison was given orally or injected into her body is being investigated,” he said, adding the report from the All India Institute of Medical Sciences was received on December 29.

A murder case had now been registered, Bassi said.

Pushkar was found dead in mysterious circumstances at a luxury hotel on January 17, 2014.

Tharoor and his wife had been at the centre of a raging row before the incident, with the controversial Sunanda accusing her husband of cheating on her and having an affair with a Pakistani journalist.
