Shashi Tharoor’s wife Sunanda Pushkar was found dead in her hotel room today at 8:30 pm. A close associate to the minister, Abhinav Kumar, said that there has been “no sign of foul play” at the site. Sunanda was married to the minister in 2010 and was found dead in South Delhi Hotel Leela #345. The couple checked in the hotel yesterday morning.
Shashi Tharoor attended the AICC session today morning. When he came he found the room locked from inside and the minister thought she was sleeping. It was he who checked on her and found her to be dead at 8.30 pm. The minister immediately called for a doctor.
Sunanda Pushkar’s death came in as a shock and the cause of her death is not known yet. Recently the couple had had an issue over a Pakistani journalist, Mehr Tarar, but the two have announced they are happily married and that they have erased all their differences!
