Mr Tharoor tweeted from his Twitter account that he would not attend Jaipur Literary Fest as his wife not well.
Mrs Tharoor's attendants did not disturb her as they thought that she was taking rest as she was unwell. However, when she did not open the door, Mr Tharoor got suspicious and asked hotel staff to barge into the room.
When Mr Tharoor entered into the room, he found Mrs Tharoor lying dead on the bed. He immediately asked his personal assistance to inform police.
