According to Swamy, Sunanda was killed as she was expected to expose a few powerful political personalities and their alleged involvement in IPL and underworld activities. During one interview with one news TV channel, Swamy also raised questions regarding Sonia Gandhi's son-in-law Robert Vadra's alleged connection to Sunanda's death.
During the interview, Swamy was quoted as saying, "Sunanda Pushkar had said she would expose the IPL deals. Robert Vadra's name would also have surfaced."
Robert Vadra's name would also have surfaced: Subramanian Swamy
Trying to justify his allegations and claims, Swamy recalled Sunanda's autopsy and viscera report saying, "Autopsy report shows it that there are 12 injury marks on her body, one injection hole and her blood had poison. So the question is if this is unnatural death as autopsy report says then there should be full scale trail in the matter."
Demanding a separate probe by NDA government, Swamy also said, "The new government-they also must move. I have given a four-week notice to the NDA government, my government, and said that if you wouldn't do it I will ask for court monitoring because political personalities will be involved."
Swamy's new allegations surfaced hours after another sensational statement ofSudhir Gupta, a doctor at the All India Institute of Medical Sciences (AIIMS). The doctor claimed that he was asked to produce a tailor-made report in the case, a report published in Zee News said.
The Zee report said that according to another report published in a website, Dr Gupta, who headed the panel that carried out Sunanda Pushkar's post-mortem, said in an affidavit filed in the Central Administrative Tribunal (CAT) that he was pressurised by former Union minister and AIIMS president Ghulam Nabi Azad to cover up the matter.
52-year-old Sunanda, wife of the then congress minister Shashi Tharoor, was found dead in Leela Hotel in New Delhi on Jan 17, 2014. The former minister had first found her body and informed police.
Sunanda's sudden death shocked the nation and surprised all as she was declared a dead following a spat between her and one Pakistan-based journalist Mehr Tarar. Sunanda had claimed that her husband had an affair with Tarar and both women were engaged in a shocking dual on micro-blogging site Twitter.
