Sunanda Pushkar Wife of Union Minister Shashi Tharoor Found Dead in Delhi Hotel

This can be a breaking news of Indian politics.

Sunanda Pushkar, the wife of Union minister Shashi Tharoor, was found dead in suite 345 of Leela Hotel on Friday evening. Her death comes within 48 hours of her going public about her husband’s alleged affair with a Pakistani journalist, raising suspicions of suicide, although no note has been found.

Her body was reportedly found by Tharoor when he returned to the hotel in the evening after Friday’s AICC session. The couple are said to have moved out of the minister’s official bungalow as it was being painted. The police were informed by Tharoor’s PS Abhinav Kumar.

The police initially suggested it was suicide. But late at night, the officers were more guarded. Police sources said it could be a “natural or unnatural death”. They said all angles were being probed: suicide, poisoning and death due to a sudden heart attack. A forensic team had come to the hotel and a magistrate was called for the interrogation of Tharoor and his PS.

As the marriage was less than seven years old, section 176 of the CrPC kicked in and the police was conducting investigations to rule out any dowry angle. Delhi police will also ask Twitter to give details of direct messages between Sunanda and Tarar.
There were no apparent injuries on the body which was discovered around 8pm when Tharoor opened the room. Police said the 52-year-old woman had been last seen in the hotel lobby around 3.30pm. The Sarojini Nagar SDM will supervise the probe.
