Dna had reported this first on February 25 last year.

As early as February 25 last year, dna was the first to point out Injury Number 10 could be the cause of death of Sunanda Pushkar, wife of former Union Minister Shashi Tharoor.Dna had published exclusive details from the postmortem report and had said that a fresh injection mark on Sunanda’s hand, marked as Injury Number 10 by doctors, may have caused her death.Except Injury Number 10, which is an injection mark,​ all injuries on her body “were caused by blunt force, simple in nature.” Sunanda’s body had 15 injuries, caused in 12 hours before her death. Injury Number 12 was caused by a teeth bite.The viscera samples on Sunanda may now be sent to an FBI lab in the US or lab in UK..Dna produced another exclusive story about the missing witness and an employee of the hotel who was the first person to notice Sunanda Pushkar dead. Elizabeth had resigned citing ‘personal reasons’ almost a month after Pushkar’s death. She was interrogated by the police then and may now be sought afresh for questioning by the CBI. Nearly a year after 51-year-old Sunanda was found dead in a luxury hotel on January 17, Delhi Police filed the case of murder under section 302 of the IPC but no one has been named in the FIR.Sunanda’s death had created a sensation as it came hot on the heels of a bitter spat between the couple on Twitter over his alleged affair with Pakistani journalist Mehr Tarar.The medical board of AIIMS submitted a fresh report to the police on December 29 and stated that it was the injection, suspected of being polonium, that may have led to Sunanda’s death. The report clearly stated it was an unnatural death.In its report AIIMS medical board had said, “The cause of death in this case is poisoning. Viscera are positive for ethyl alcohol, caffeine, acetaminophen and cotinine.” From the medical document made available to them the panel has also concluded that Sunanda did not have cardiac problem. She was not suffering from any diseases like hypertension, diabetes or tuberculosis.The panel has concluded that Sunanda was neither ill nor had any disease prior to her death. She was a normal healthy individual.The medical board had examined all the injuries on her body out of which ‘Injury Number 10’ has been termed as a mark caused by the needle of a syringe.The team has also dismissed the theory that Sunanda died of an overdose of Alprazolam as the viscera report is negative for the presence of the substance.
