January 17, 2014: Sunanda Pushkar was found dead under mysterious circumstances in room no 345 of Hotel Leela Palace in New Delhi.

The police said Pushkar took her own life.

Two days before her death, a series of intimate messages, supposedly sent by the Pakistani journalist Mehar Tarar to Tharoor, were posted on Tharoor's Twitter account.

2/2) it does not speak well of the methods or motivations of the Delhi Police. In its charge sheet, which runs into 3,000 pages, the police has also alleged that Mr Tharoor had subjected his wife to cruelty.

In his tweet, he claimed that whoever knew Sunanda Pushkar can not believe that she has committed suicide, thus it is absurd that there has been any abatement.

He also alleged that a media trial was conducted against Tharoor to defame him as part of the conspiracy, in which Delhi Police was used as an instrument by the BJP and the Modi government.

He Sundanda Pushkar in late 2010, the third marriage for both of them.

Tharoor, according to sources, has been charged under Sections 306 and 498A of the Indian Penal Code (IPC) - pertaining to abetment to suicide and cruelty to wife which entails a jail term that may extend to 10 years.

September 30, 2014: The Delhi Police gets the viscera report.

February: Viscera samples sent to the Federal Bureau of Investigation lab in Washington.

A police officer, who did not wish to be named, said that the analysis report, though not admissible as evidence in court, supports other evidence such as medical and autopsy reports, statements of those who knew the couple and the phone messages they have retrieved. Tharoor's name appears in the "Column 2" of the chargesheet, which makes him the most likely suspect.

The hotel suite where her death occurred was sealed for investigation and reopened just last month. BJP leaders, notably Subramanian Swamy, have extensively targeted Tharoor over the case.

The petition was dismissed by the Delhi HC in October 2017, calling it "politically motivated".

Swamy had earlier told the court that there has been constant attempt to block the investigation into the death of Pushkar. The report says this was not a case of murder.

The magistrate fixed May 23 as the date of taking cognisance of the charge sheet.
