New Delhi, July 18: Mehr Tarar, whose name had cropped up during the probe into the mysterious death of former Union minister Shashi Tharoor's wife Sunanda Pushkar in 2014, has denied any wrong doing and told the Delhi Police that she had not sent any objectionable mail to Tharoor.
Mehr, a Pakistani journalist, visited India several weeks ago at the request of Delhi Police, whom she met for over three hours at a five-star hotel in Central Delhi.
Delhi Police are, however, not calling this an interrogation as there is no legal binding on Mehr to consent to be questioned by Indian police.
Sunanda Pushkar was found dead at Leela Hotel's suite 345 on January 2014, a day after she had a spat with Mehr on Twitter, alleging that the latter had an affair with her husband.
What Mehr Tarar said
Sunanda Pushkar prior to her death had alleged that her husband's family too was encouraging the alleged affair between Shashi Tharoor and Mehr.
The Delhi Police also learnt while recording the statements of various other people that Mehr is alleged to have sent Tharoor a mail in which it had been claimed that she was unable to live without him.
The Delhi Police will now corroborate the versions given by the rest with what Mehr told them. The police had been told by journalist Nalini Singh that Sunanda had once sought her help in retrieving the messages sent by Mehr to her husband.
