According to sources, the SIT asked Menon about Pushkar’s relationship with Tharoor. The team also asked Menon to recall the last conversation he had with Pushkar.

He was also said to have been asked about his mother’s health during her last days and if she was upset with Tharoor over his “friendship” with Pakistani journalist Mehr Tarar.
