Mehr Tarar, the Pakistan-based journalist with whom Sunanda Pushkar had accused Shashi Tharoor of having an affair with, responded with shock at the news of Sunanda’s death.
“What the hell. Sunanda. Oh my God”, said her first tweet.
“I just woke up and read this. I’m absolutely shocked. This is too awful for words. So tragic I don’t know what to say. Rest in peace, Sunanda,” said her second tweet.
Sunanda Pushkar, Shashi Tharoor’s wife, passed away on Friday night in a Delhi hotel. Her body was found under mysterious circumstances and police believe she could have taken her own life.
BJP leaders Prabhat Jha, Shahnawaz Hussain and Krishnapal Gujar also addressed a number of rallies.
