After series of twists and turns in the Sunanda Pushkar death case, finally it has been confirmed now that the celebrity was murdered. The Delhi Police on Tuesday said that politician Shashi Tharoor's wife Sunanda didn't die natural death instead she was murdered.
Sunanda's husband and former Union Minister Shashi Tharoor said that he was "stunned" over Delhi Police registering a murder case in the mysterious death case and demanded a "comprehensive investigation" in the matter.
Meanwhile, BJP leader Subramanian Swamy claimed that Sunanda Pushkar wanted to tell the truth. Attacking Congress MP Shashi Tharoor, Swamy said, "He is a liar, the more he opens his mouth the more trouble he is going to get into". Shashi Tharoor will be grilled by the police in coming days to check all the angles related to this sensational murder case of 2014.
