New Delhi: The National Commission for Women (NCW) has sought an action taken report from Delhi police in the case of Sunanda Pushkar's death in the wake of a new medical report.

The Commission has also asked for the fresh medical report from the police, submitted by AIIMS doctors on the reasons for Pushkar's demise, which rekindled the controversy shrouding her death.

"We have asked for action taken report in Sunanda Pushkar's death in light of recent developments from Delhi police along with the new medical report that has been given to them," said NCW chairperson, Lalitha Kumaramangalam.

The fresh report submitted on the reasons for the mysterious death of Sunanda Pushkar is "inconclusive", according to Delhi Police.

Delhi Police Commissioner B S Bassi had dismissed suggestions that police had been lax in collecting evidence and that the probe should be handed over to CBI, asserting that the force was "competent" to handle the case. The Delhi Police was also mulling going in for advance forensic tests.

"The forensic report is inconclusive. The status of our inquest is pending," Bassi had said.

Police may now seek another expert opinion from the Central Forensic Science Laboratory (CFSL) or go in for advance forensic tests to clear the air, according to sources.

The 12-page "Subsequent Medical Board Opinion", submitted to police on September 30 by a panel of AIIMS doctors, said that the medical board had again concluded like it did in its first report that her brain, kidney, lungs and liver were functioning normally and that her death was caused by poisoning.

Sunanda, wife of Former Union Minister Sashi Tharoor, a Congress MP, was found dead in a 5-star hotel in South Delhi on the night of January 17, a day after her Twitter spat with Pakistani journalist Mehr Tarar over an alleged affair with Tharoor.
