Sunanda Pushkar Murder Case: #SunandaForensicMail Shows How An Attempt Was Made To Influence Government

Team Republic |

Republic TV has exclusively accessed the #SunandaForensicMail, an email that shows how an attempt was made to influence the investigation in the Sunanda Pushkar murder case.

As per this latest investigation, on 19th October-- 9 days after Shashi Tharoor allegedly writes to his “friend” Rajan Rao regarding relaying medical information to a certain “HM”-- another “friend” of Shashi Tharoor writes to him.  

This email is then allegedly forwarded by Shashi Tharoor on 20th October, 2014 to Rajan Rao. The subject of this email is: “Fwd: Letter that was SENT TODAY to Health Minister, Dr. Harsha Vardhan by Padma Bhushan, Professor Dr. Chandra Sekharan” .  

C Raj Kumar is presently a Delhi-based Vice Chancellor of Jindal University.

The email has an attachment to a private medical opinion which tries to deride the AIIMS conclusion of death by poisoning.

In the mail, the present Jindal University Vice-Chancellor C Raj Kumar encloses a private forensic opinion which had been arranged in the Sunanda case. In a stunning turn of events, Raj Kumar discloses that the private forensic opinion was sent to Union Health Minister Harsha Vardhan on 19th October 2014. He also claims that a top news agency of India was given an advance copy of the private medical opinion running down AIIMS’ conclusions.

Following is the letter sent from C Raj Kumar Rao to Shashi Tharoor:  

DATE: 19 October 2014

From: C. Raj Kumar to Shashi Tharoor 

Subject: 
"Letter that was SENT TODAY to Health Minister,
Dr Harsha Vardhan by Padma Bhushan, Professor Dr Chandra Sekharan"

Text:
"The enclosed independent opinion of Padma Bhushan, Professor Dr. Chandra Sekharan, a distinguished Forensic Scientist was sent to the Union Minister of Health,
Dr Harsha Varshan directly by him this evening to his email address. Professor Chandra Sekharan also sent a copy of the enclosed opinion to XXXXXX Chief Legal Correspondent of (news agency) for his reference. (News Agency) is expected to publish a story on this matter before 12 noon tomorrow.

I suggest that this letter may not be released to anybody till (News Agency) publishes its story by 12 noon tomorrow.

Thanks and best regards

Raj

Republic asks:  If Shashi Tharoor trusts the agencies to probe into Sunanda's murder, on what basis did he become a party to an attempt to influence the probe?
