Sunanda Pushkar, wife of politician and UNI Secretary General Shashi Tharoor, committed suicide.  On 16th January 2014, Sunanda published from her husband’s Twitter account, messages allegedly send by a Pakistani journalist, Mehr Tarar to Tharoor, declaring her love for him. Sunanda’s tweets addressing Tarar as an ISI agent,  stalking Tharoor, went on to become a full-scale Twitter war, with Tarar threatening to sue Sunanda for calling her an ISI agent.  Tharoor mentioned that his account was hacked, while Sunanda said that she had only tweeted from her husband’s account.

This was the 52 year old Sunanda’s third marriage.  Her first husband was a Kashmiri man called Sanjay Raina. After the marriage ended in a divorce, she married another Keralite businessman Sujith Menon, who died in an automobile accident. Sunanda was found dead in room number 345 of Leela Hote, under mysterious circumstances on Friday night,  January 17, 2014.

Shashi Tharoor, issued a statement claiming that his Twitter account had been hacked. But his wife denied this and that she had posted the messages herself to expose how Tarar had “stalked” her husband and their alleged affair.

“Our accounts have not been hacked and I have been sending out these tweets,” she said in a statement to the Economic Times. “She is stalking my husband. And you know how men are. He is flattered by the attention… I will not allow this to be done to me. I just can’t tolerate this.” Pushkar Tharoor told the Indian Express that her husband and Tarar had been having a “rip-roaring affair” since April last year when the journalist interviewed him in New Delhi. It had left her “destroyed as a wife and a woman” and she should now “seek divorce”.
