Sunanda Pushkar found dead in Delhi hotel. Tharoor   admitted into AIMS following chest pains.

NEW DELHI: Sunanda Pushkar, wife of Union minister for human resources development, Shashi Tharoor – was found dead in a five-star hotel here last evening.

The discovery came when the housekeeping staff apparently knocked on Sunanda’s door around 7 pm but later opened the room with spare swipe, owing to lack of response.

Police sources have not talked of a suicide note in the room, so far. The entire 3rd floor of the five star-hotel where the 52- year-old stayed, has been sealed as forensic experts scour the scene for evidence. Investigating officers are also viewing the hotel’s CCTV footage for the last 12 hours.

Witnesses confirm having seen Pushkar in the hotel’s lobby between 2 and 3 pm last noon.

The cause of death is not immediately clear, though suicide theory is doing rounds. Pushkar’s family members, high on emotion, however assert that suicide was an impossible proposition for her.

Meanwhile, reportedly crumbling under pressure ever since the news of death broke out, 57-year-old Tharoor has been admitted into AIMS following complaint of chest pains.

The hi-profile couple’s marriage took a hit when some intimate messages between Tharoor and a Pakistani woman journalist, Mehr Tarar were let open on the minister’s official twitter a/c, reportedly by a disturbed Pushkar.

Pushkar had accused Tarar of trying to ‘break’ her marriage when away for medical treatment. According to medical sources, Puskhar was diagnosed with stomach TB last month and suffered lung infection too, both being ailments of non-serious state, they added.

Both Tharoor and Pushkar had married twice before.
