On Wednesday, the BJP leader had questioned Delhi Police’s role in the death probe. From the beginning, Swamy has maintained that there was foul play in Sunanda Pushkar’s death. He had also moved the Delhi High Court seeking a court-monitored probe into the case. However, his Public Interest Litigation was rejected.

The case got a new twist when Dr. Sudhir Gupta who did the autopsy, claimed he was pressurised to manipulate the autopsy report.

In 2016, the then Delhi Police Commissioner, BS Bassi stated that Pushkar did not die of natural causes. The Delhi Police filed a 3000-page charge sheet later on May 15, 2018.
