Sunanda Pushkar died an unnatural sudden death say AIIMS doctors; body cremated


The cremation took place around 5.30 pm at the Lodhi crematorium in south Delhi, near the couple's residence in Lodhi Estate.
Earlier, doctors who performed post-mortem Pushkar’s body found certain injury marks, which "may or may not be related to her death".

"There were certain injury marks on her body. The nature of the injuries cannot be revealed. It is a case of sudden unnatural death," said a doctor at All India Institute of Medical Sciences (AIIMS), where the autopsy was done.

"Samples of toxicology analysis rules out poisoning," the doctor said, adding the post-mortem report would be available in two days. 

The last rites of Sunanda, Union minister Shashi Tharoor’s wife, will take place at Lodhi Road crematorium around 5.30pm, TV channels reported.

Media reports also said Tharoor, the minister of state for human resource development, was expected to give a statement to the police after the cremation of his wife.

Earlier in the day, Tharoor, who was admitted to AIIMS, was discharged after doctors said he was fine. He had complained of uneasiness and chest pain.
