"The forensic report at the moment is not conclusive, our inquest status in today's date is pending," Delhi Police Commissioner BS Bassi told reporters in New Delhi.

Pushkar's latest post-mortem report, leaked on Thursday, stated "poisoning" to be the cause of her death.

He said police would draw their conclusion once they get conclusive evidence. "We believe in the quest for truth and whatever is required in the quest for truth... We have been doing and will continue doing," Bassi said while answering a question about the role of the investigating officer.

"We are competent to carry out the probe...Inquest is pending...And whatever is required will be done," he added.

The revelation came around 10 days after the post-mortem report of the Central Forensic Science Laboratory (CFSL) was submitted to Delhi Police by the All India Institute of Medical Sciences (AIIMS).

Pushkar, 52, was found dead in mysterious circumstances in her room at a five-star hotel in south Delhi on 17 January.
