New Delhi, Jan 18 IBNS | 11 months ago

Hours after his ailing wife Sunanda Pushkar was found dead in a Delhi hotel on Friday, Union Minister of State for Human Resource Development Shashi Tharoor was admitted to the All India Institute of Medical Sciences (AIIMS) late night after he complained of chest pain and uneasiness.

He was first admitted to the intensive care unit (ICU), but was later shifted to the general bed after doctors declared him to be out of danger.

According to reports, Tharoor will be kept under observation on Saturday before he could be discharged.

Meanwhile, Pushkar's post-mortem examination report is likely on Saturday.

Pushkar was found dead at Leela Palace Hotel in New Delhi on Friday, fuelling speculations on the cause of her demise since the couple was caught in a controversy over their "hacked" Twitter account and some tweets that involved a Pakistani woman journalist linked to Tharoor romantically.

Kashmir born Sunanda Pushkar was 52. She was a sales director in the Dubai-based TECOM Investments, and a co-owner of Rendezvous Sports World. She had last tweeted to an acquaintance that she was sick and if she died she would go from the world smiling.

Whether she committed suicide or died from her sickness- she said she had also got tuberculosis- was not immediately known.
