In response to a question, Bassi said Pakistani journalist Mehr Tarar, whose friendship with Tharoor had reportedly led to a row between him and Pushkar, may also be questioned if needed.

Pushkar was found dead just days after an open spat on Twitter drew attention on the couple's personal life and Tarar.
