Sunanda Pushkar's Death - 20 Jan 2014
Images relating to the death of Sunanda Pushkar, wife of Indian government minister Shashi Tharoor.

Tharoor appeared on Sunday before a magistrate probing the death of his wife days after she accused him of adultery.

In a case that has become an election-year political embarrassment for the ruling Congress party, Tharoor's wife was found dead in a luxury hotel room in New Delhi after sending tweets that suggested her husband was having an affair with a Pakistan-based journalist.

An autopsy found that Sunanda Pushkar's death was "sudden and unnatural" and that her body bore injury marks, although doctors said this did not mean the injuries had caused her death.

Tharoor, a high-flying former U.N. diplomat, called for a quick investigation into the death of his wife, saying he hoped this would put an end to rumours about their personal lives.
