The Sunanda Pushkar case
The then wife of former Union Minister Shashi Tharoor, Sunanda Pushkar was found dead at a five-star-hotel in Chanakyapuri area on January 17, 2014. Despite the case being transferred to the Crime Branch of Delhi Police and a Special Investigating team (SIT) being formed, the case has not reached any logical conclusion. The Delhi Police last week informed the Delhi High Court that it intends to start a new mode of investigation known as forensic psychology in the Sunanda Pushkar murder case.
Shobhit Modi case
Shobhit Modi, a 20-yearold IT student, son of the general manager of a public sector company, was fatally stabbed by unknown assailants just a few hundred metres from his home in south Delhi’s Vasant Kunj in 2011. The police suspected it to be a vendetta killing. The victim was found stumbling towards gate number three of C-5 Vasant Kunj by the guard around 9:50 pm. When Shobhit slumped on the car barrier and did not move, the guard found at least four stab injuries on his chest, abdomen and shoulders.
