Sunanda Pushkar death case: Shashi Tharoor likely to undergo lie-detector test, say reports

New Delhi(dna): In fresh trouble for Congress leader Shashi Tharoor, he may be asked to undergo a lie-detector test in connection with the murder case of his wife Sunanda Pushkar, said media reports.

According to reports, the Special Investigation Team (SIT) may appeal in the court for the polygraph test.

As many as six people have undergone lie-detector test as part of probe. In the last week, the Special Investigation Team (SIT) carried out polygraph test on 3 key witnesses-Sanjay Dewan, Narain Singh and Bajrangi.

The police had said in the plea that on January 17, 2014 Tharoor’s close friend Sanjay Dewan came to the hotel at 5 pm and remained there till the discovery of Pushkar’s death. He could not give plausible reason for cancelling his trip to Mumbai and his coming to the hotel in Delhi, it had said.

Tharoor has been questioned thrice in this case so far.

Pushkar was found dead in the hotel suite on January 17 last year, days after a public spat on Twitter where she accused her husband of having an affair with the Pakistani journalist. In the first week of January this year, police claimed that Sunanda Pushkar (51) was poisoned, and registered a murder case against unknown persons.

A Special Investigation Team (SIT), formed to probe the case, is learnt to be looking into a possible link with the multi-million dollar Indian Premier League.
