that an in­ter­nal Delhi Po­lice re­port based on a mag­is­te­rial in­quiry sug­gested that Su­nanda’s death was not a sui­cide but a mur­der. She was found dead on Jan­uary 17, 2014, in room num­ber 345 of the posh Leela Ho­tel in Delhi’s Chankya­puri.

The re­port fur­ther pointed out that all “chance prints” were sent to Delhi Po­lice’s Fin­ger Print Bureau to get clues by match­ing them with their data base of crim­i­nals.

“None of the chance prints matched with the ex­ist­ing fin­ger­print data at the fin­ger­print bureau,” the foren­sic re­port stated.

The po­lice also found a piece of bro­ken glass from the crime scene but there was no lead es­tab­lished from this as well. The Delhi Po­lice re­port based on the au­topsy said that the cause of death was poi­son­ing. Two in­juries on the body in­clud­ing an in­jec­tion mark on her hand were specif­i­cally men­tioned.
