New Delhi, Jan 18 : A three-doctor panel was constituted Saturday to conduct the postmortem examination of union Minister Shashi Tharoor's wife Sunanda Pushkar, who was found dead Friday night in a hotel here.
An official of the All India Institute of Medical Sciences (AIIMS) said: "A panel of three senior doctors has been set up to conduct the postmortem of Sunanda Pushkar. The postmortem will be conducted soon."
The official said during the autopsy, videography and photography will also be done.
"If anything needs to be shared with media it will be informed. It is expected that an initial postmortem brief will come around 6 p.m. Saturday," the official added.
Sunanda Pushkar, 52, was found dead under mysterious circumstances in a suite at The Leela Palace hotel in south Delhi.
There was speculation over their relationship after the two declared they were "happily married" following public airing of tweets that hinted at an extra-marital relationship and alleged involvement of a Pakistani woman.
Meanwhile, Shashi Tharoor was admitted to AIIMS early Saturday after he complained of chest pain. Tharoor was initially admitted to the ICU as a precautionary measure but was later shifted to a private ward.
Doctors said he is stable now and will be discharged later in the day.
