NEW DELHI, Jan 23 � The probe into the mysterious death of Sunanda Pushkar, wife of Union Minister Shashi Tharoor, was today transfered to the elite Crime Branch of Delhi Police, a week after she was found dead in a luxury hotel here, reports PTI.
Sources said the high-profile case has been handed over to Crime Branch considering �various aspects� involving it.
On Tuesday, a sub-divisional magistrate, who probed
Sunanda�s death, had directed the police to investigate murder or suicide angles in the case after the autopsy report mentioned �poisoning� as the reason for her demise.
