Briefing  media personnel, Bassi confirmed that some journalists who have been maintaining that Pushkar had called them a day before her death will be questioned in the coming days.

Bassi said: "We will definitely speak to those scribes to get to the roots of this case."The police is trying to find out whether Sunanda had mentioned to the journalists about the IPL controversy or her husband Shashi Tharoor's alleged relations with Pakistani journalist Mehr Tarar or about any plans of hers to hold a press conference.

These journalists had been mentioning that Sunanda had suspected Tharoor of having an affair with Tarar and have also quoted her of saying that she had "taken the flak for him (Tharoor) in the IPL (controversy)", police sources said while explaining why one male and two female journalists were called for questioning by the Special Investigating Team (SIT).

Shashi Tharoor was questioned on Monday night and police officials said that Tharoor would be questioned again this week.

The SIT has questioned at least 12 people, including Tharoor's security staff members and domestic help who were present in the hotel in south Delhi's Leela Palace hotel when Pushkar was found dead.
