Sunanda Death Probe Risky!
|by Dr. Rajinder Puri|
Mystery continues to haunt the death of Sunanda Pushkar, late wife of Congress leader Mr. Shahshi Tharoor. The controversy has resurfaced after a doctor probing her death has stated that pressures were exerted on him to wrongly state that the death was from natural causes. The police did not pursue the case as expected because people thought that UPA celebrities were involved. However, now with the NDA government in office, people expect that the case will be pursued through a credible investigation. Will it? If a genuine probe could have embarrassed UPA leaders, will such a probe embarrass NDA leaders any less? Consider some broad facts related to the case.
In the light of this background it might appear that a vigorous probe into Sunanda’s death is imminent. However, there could be a slight complication.
According to the CBI Dawood Ibrahim controlled the betting syndicates that generated all the black money through match fixing. And according to the CBI the money generated from match fixing by Dawood was most likely used by terrorists.
Less than 48 hours before her death Sunanda met with eminent journalist Ms Barkha Dutt and reportedly told her that she was being made a scapegoat for all the wheeling and dealing going on in the IPL League. She told Ms Dutt that she would shortly meet the media and expose all that was happening in the IPL cricket. In the morning of her death she repeated similar sentiments to Ms Nalini Singh, also a well known commentator. Both Ms Dutt and Ms Singh recounted to TV viewers their interaction with Sunanda. It follows therefore that if there was foul play connected to Sunanda’s death, a probe would seek the motive for the crime.
So will there be a probe to uncover the full trail of crime and corruption that might have been behind the death of Sunanda Pushkar? Your guess would be as good as mine.
