Senior journalist Nalini Singh said, "Shocking that one year of this huge speculation and now Delhi Police has come to this conclusion."
"Now we will know how Sunanda died, it won't remain a mystery ,her death has not died a death", she said.
This is what the husband of late Sunanda Pushkar and the Congress leader Shashi Tharoor had to say on her latest medical reports:
In a sensational twist to the mysterious death of Shashi Tharoor's wife Sunanda Pushkar, Delhi Police today registered a case of murder after a medical report said her death was unnatural and was caused due to poisoning but nobody has been named as a suspect as yet.
Sunanda was found dead in a luxury hotel Jan 17, 2014, a day after she and Tharoor checked in because their house was allegedly getting painted. Both had been married twice earlier.
