Politician's wife's death 'unnatural'

It's a story with all the elements of a Bollywood drama... a high profile love, politics, scandal and an untimely death. Sunanda Pushkar, the wife an Indian politician, was found dead in a hotel room on Friday. An autopsy report now says her death was 'sudden and unnatural'. Her husband, Shashi Tharoor, was admitted to hospital shortly after finding her, complaining of chest pains. He was later released and participated in a Hindu rites ceremony on Saturday to cremate her body. Earlier last week, Sunanda had accused a Pakistan-based journalist with stalking her husband and said she was going to reveal their 'rip roaring affair'. Tharoor and the journalist both denied the claims. But the accusation was made over Twitter - which prompted wall to wall coverage by social and conventional media. Forensic teams are expected to release more information about the exact cause of death in the coming days.
