Sunanda case: Shinde says he has ordered expeditious probe

By The Assam Tribune

NEW DELHI, Jan 20 (PTI): Home Minister Sushilkumar Shinde has asked

the police to conduct an expeditious probe into the death of Sunanda

Pushkar, wife of Union minister Shashi Tharoor.

"He (Tharoor) has written to me and sought an expeditious probe.

I have already talked to the persons concerned and they are doing

it," he told reporters on the sidelines of a function here today.

Tharoor, Minister of State for HRD, had yesterday written a letter

to the Home Minister offering his full cooperation in the probe into

the death of his 52-year-old wife Sunanda, saying he was "horrified

to read the reckless speculation rampant" in the media.

In the letter, Tharoor, 57, had said the relevant authorities be

asked to expedite the investigation and come to a rapid conclusion

so that the truth emerges at the earliest regarding Sunanda who

was found dead in a luxury hotel here on Friday evening.
