BJP leader Subramanian Swamy on Saturday demanded setting up of a special investigation team (SIT) to probe the death of Sunanda Pushkar, wife of Congress MP Shashi Tharoor.

“SIT should be set up. In fact, Delhi Police should recommend it,” he told reporters in Jaipur.

He also demanded that the FBI report which confirms that Pushkar’s death was due to poisoning should be released. Pushkar was found dead in a hotel room in January 2014.

On the Ram temple issue, Swamy said there should be day-to-day hearing of appeals in the Ram Janmabhoomi case in the Supreme Court and that he has written to the Prime Minister for moving the apex court.

He also expressed satisfaction at what the Narendra Modi government was doing after the Pathankot attack. “I am absolutely satisfied. Whatever the Prime Minister is doing is necessary,” he said.
