Five weeks after his wife Sunanda Pushkar was found dead under mysterious circumstances, Union Minister Shashi Tharoor on Sunday said he was "not happy" with the pace of the probe by the Delhi Police. 

Tharoor said it seems increasingly that Sunanda (52) died due to "health related" issues and it is also "increasingly clear" that there was no basis to take the case much further. 

The Minister of State for Human Resources Development said he was "not happy" with the amount of time the investigating authorities were taking for completing the process as "non-sense speculations" were being made.

"It seems increasingly that a tragedy happened that is health related and not related to anything else. But we are waiting for the police investigation to get over and to see the final determination by the doctors and medical team," Tharoor told Headlines Today in an interview.

He said he was fully cooperating with the police investigation "even though there is no case against me personally."

Asked about the progress in the investigations by the Delhi Police in the case, Tharoor said, "(it is) increasingly clear that they (police) have not filed an FIR, there is no charge sheet, there is no case, it is increasingly clear that there is no basis for taking the case very much further.
