Key witnesses to Pushkar death case ready to face polygraph test

New Delhi, May 20 (IBNS) Three key witnesses in the Sunanda Pushkar murder case have been summoned by the court on Wednesday as they have reportedly agreed to face a lie-detector test sought by the Delhi Police, investigating into the death of Congress leader Shashi Tharoor's wife.

Last week, a Special Investigation Team of the Delhi Police  said  Tharoors' domestic help Narain Singh, driver Bajrangi and family friend Sanjay Dewan - may be "hiding something" sought court's permission  to subject them to a polygraph test.

Reports quoted the witnesses as saying that  they have nothing to hide.

Sunanda Pushkar was in a Delhi hotel suit on January 17 last year, days after she publicly accused her husband of having an affair with a Pakistani journalist.

Police started a murder case this year after a medical report attributed Sunanda's death to poisoning.

Tharoor, a former union minister, has been questioned thrice by the police.

The Special Investigation Team is also inquiring into a possible link to the multimillion-dollar Indian Premier League.
