“Her dead body was found in her room,” Delhi Police spokesman Rajan Bhagat told Reuters by phone. He declined to give details.
Abhinav Kumar, Tharoor’s personal assistant, said the junior minister for human resource development was at a Congress party session the entire day on Friday. Sunanda was found lying in bed in her room, Kumar said.
“There was no sign of foul play or any struggle. She had no sign of poisoning or anything,” he told reporters outside the Leela hotel.
Sunanda Tharoor’s death was reported two days after she accused Pakistani journalist Mehr Tarar of stalking her husband. On Wednesday, misspelled posts apparently referring to the minister’s alleged affair with Tarar appeared on his Twitter account. Tharoor tweeted that his account had been hacked, although media reports quoted Sunanda as saying she had posted the messages.
