Earlier and as per the reports in toi Delhi Police had written to the enforcement directorate to probe financial/IPL angle in the Sunanda Pushkar case+ .
Earlier, Delhi’s economic offences wing (EOW) was investigating this aspect. The EOW was probing the shareholding pattern of the now-defunct IPL team Kochi Tuskers.
The investigations+ revolve around the Rs 75 crore (4.75%) sweat equity offered to Sunanda by Rendezvous Sports World, a member of the consortium that won the Kochi IPL franchise.Sunanda had to give up the equity later as it caused a furore after ex-IPL chief Lalit Modi tweeted the ownership pattern in 2010. Sources said that Sunanda — who was not married to Shashi Tharoor then — had been offered this equity in lieu of the funds she had arranged for the team.
The revelation had eventually led Tharoor, who was MoS home affairs at that time, to resign from his post. BCCI subsequently terminated the contract of Kochi Tuskers.
“We are going through the background to understand the case. If required, the financial transactions will be probed,” police commissioner BS Bassi said on Friday. He also confirmed that Shashi Tharoor will be quizzed again sometime next week.
Cops said they will probe if Sunanda+ was used as a front for someone else and if it had any connection with the differences the erupted between the couple. Both Tharoor and Sunanda had earlier denied that the latter was not a proxy for the former minister. Lalit Modi had accused Tharoor of asking him not to reveal the ownership details, a charge denied by the ex-minister.
The police want to ascertain whether she was killed, if at all, due to IPL related issues, something which has come out in almost everyone’s questioning. Earlier, journalist Nalini Singh had talked about Sunanda telling her hours before her death that “she had ‘taken over’ crime during IPL”. Another family friend and politician Amar Singh has also spoken about the IPL connection.
In addition to this ,Dr Swamy has tweeted this in the morning “The motive of Sunanda’s murder is that she was going to expose to media about the role of Buddhu in the IPL betting at the behest of GST.” Buddhu apparently refers to Rahul,a nd GST to shashi.
Here swamy has clearly pointed out the exact motive behind the sunanda pushkar murder case, only time and fair investigation will bring out the truth.[contact-form-7 id="10387" title="Contact form 1"]
