New Delhi: Even as mystery continues to shroud the death of Sunanda Pushar, wife of Congress leader Shashi Tharoor, a report claims that Pushkar, 52 died due to overdose of Alprax or Alprazolam, an anti-depressant, overdose of which can be fatal.

According to ‘CNN-IBN’, the FBI in the US, which tested the viscera samples of Pushkar, has ruled out use of polonium, illicit drugs or alcohol abuse as cause of death.

The channel further reported that the All India Institute of Medical Sciences (AIIMS) final report says that it must be investigated whether Pushkar was injected with insulin as it can cause death if a person is starving for 2-3 days.

Last week, the case of sensational death of Sunanda Pushkar reached a new stage with the FBI endorsing the AIIMS report of poisoning as the cause and also saying that a “dangerous chemical” was present in her body that may have killed her.

Disclosing the receipt of the AIIMS report analysing the FBI conclusions, Delhi Police Commissioner B S Bassi told the media that Sunanda’s death was not natural but ruled out the presence of radioactive material in her viscera.

Pushkar, 52, wife of senior Congress leader Shashi Tharoor, was found dead in a south Delhi hotel room on January 17, 2014.
