According to media reports, over dozen injury marks were found on Sunanda's body. Senior doctors at AIIMS believe that Sunanda had a physical confrontation with somebody before her death, said a report published in the DNA on Wednesday.
Meanwhile, the Sub-Divisional Magistrate (SDM) -- Alok Sharma, who has been investigating the case, confirmed that Sunanda died of 'poisoning'. He also asked Delhi Police to commence investigation into the death case. The police are expected to investigate whether the poisoning was accidental, suicidal or homicidal.
None of Sunanda's family members made any dowry allegations against Tharoor
AIIMS doctors, who conducted the postmortem, however, did not disclose the exact substance that caused the ‘poisoning'. The doctors claimed that they will give complete details only after receiving toxicology report of the viscera. The viscera report, which normally takes many weeks or even months, would most likely be submitted soon in this case.
Mr Sharma was quoted as saying, "I have submitted the report to the police. I have directed them to examine the case further. None of her family members made any dowry allegations against Shashi Tharoor."
Sunanda, wife of Union Minister Shashi Tharoor, was found dead inside a hotel room in Delhi. The nation was shocked after getting the news which surfaced following an open war of words on micro-blogging site Twitter between Sunanda and a Pakistani journalist Mehr Tarar. Sunanda had accused Tarar of stalking her husband Tharoor. However, the couple later had issued a joint statement saying that they were 'happily married".
