    The Court also granted him permission to visit United Nations Headquarters to seek aid for Kerala Floods.

    Tharoor has been charged in a case related to his wife Sunanda Pushkar's death in a luxury hotel under sections 498A (husband or his relative subjecting a woman to cruelty) and 306 (abetment of suicide) of the Indian Penal Code (IPC), but has not been arrested in the case. The court had earlier barred him from foreign travel without prior permission.

    Sunanda Pushkar was found dead in a suite of a luxury hotel in the city on the night of January 17, 2014. The couple was staying in the hotel, as the official bungalow of Tharoor was being renovated at that time.
