The Delhi Police on Tuesday registered a case of murder in the death of former union minister Shashi Tharoor’s wife, Sunanda Pushkar.

According to reports, the medical board that carried out Pushkar’s autopsy has stated that her death was unnatural and caused by poisoning.

Further details are awaited.

Pushkar, who married Congress leader Shashi Tharoor in 2010, had checked into The Leela Hotel in Chanakyapuri a day before her death.
Tharoor’s aides said the couple had checked into the luxury hotel because of renovation work at his Delhi bungalow.

Prior to her death, Sunanda was embroiled in a spat with Pakistan-based journalist, Mehr Tarar, whom she accused of stalking her husband.
