Tharoor demands a probe ‘without political pressure’

He also offered to face questioning by Delhi Police at an early opportunity to address the questions they may have.

Days after the Delhi Police filed a case of murder in his wife’s mysterious death almost a year ago, the former Union Minister, who completed a two-week Ayurveda treatment near here, met the media to say that he will extend full cooperation in a “fair” investigation.

“I have a number of questions in my mind and concerns over the way in which the investigation had moved so far. I have written to the Police Commissioner on Thursday in detail. Hope he will have discussions with the investigating officers. It is for him to do what he wants to do,” he said.
In his letter to the Police Commissioner, Tharoor said he is looking for an early opportunity to address questions “his people may have”.

“It is very important that it (probe) should be done professionally without any political pressure or intervention and without any pre-determined outcome,” he said. Tharoor again said that he was “taken aback” by the police decision to register a murder case as the family had no reason to believe “foul play” in Sunanda’s death.

“I was completely taken aback as there is no reason to believe for any one in the family that foul play would have been involved in her passing away. Every one loved her and (there was) no question of any one having reason to harm (Sunanda),” he said.

“There was no reason for anyone who had access to her would do anything to do her any harm. But I pledge full cooperation in the investigation,” he said.
