The Forensic investigation of crime and scientific services (CFSL) wing of the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) has taken pictures of the room after which the Delhi Police did a final round up of the crime scene. Delhi Police was also present with the CFSL to make sure if the forensic team need anything  at the Leela Hotel in Delhi on Friday for re-examination of the Sunanda Murder Case. A team comprising of 5 members re-examined the room at The Leela Hotel where Sunanda was found dead.

The team includes forensic experts who are video graphing the entire process. Four members of the Special Investigations team (SIT) are also present inside the hotel including the Additional DCP Manishi Chandra along with more inspectors of the South District. 

Earlier, The High Court on Wednesday had slammed the Delhi Police over the Sunanda Pushkar murder case. The Court had questioned the police as to why the report was not filed even three years after her death.

BJP MP Dr. Subramanian Swamy, who had demanded a CBI probe into the case, had said in Court that the Delhi Police status report falsely states that AIIMS while examining the body for postmortem gave different opinions. Earlier on August 19, Delhi's Patiala House Court pulled up the Delhi police for delaying the de-sealing of the hotel suite, where Sunanda Pushkar was found. 

Earlier in May, Hotel Leela Palace filed a plea to de-seal the room citing loss of revenue. The room has been sealed since Sunanda Pushkar was found dead in January 2014. Lawyer for Hotel told the Court that the room has been sealed and no evidence has been collected so far.
