March24/ 2015

Kochi,March 24: Congress MP Shashi Tharoor on Monday lashed out at the English daily Times of India for allegedly ‘publishing falsehoods’ about him regarding his wife Sunanda Pushkar death case.

The English daily on Monday reported that Tharoor said to the media outside KeralaHigh Court that Pushkar’s case was that of a suicide and not murder. The report claimed that Tharoor’s said that Pushkar’s family too believed it was a suicide case and hence stood by him. It adds that he said that the police can question anyone including Mehr Tahr and he had nothing to hide. The report does not quote him directly.
