NEW DELHI - Four years after Sunanda Pushkar was found dead in her suite at a five-star hotel in Delhi, her husband and Congress leader *Shashi Tharoor has been charged* <link> by the Delhi police with ‘abetting her suicide’ and ‘subjecting her to cruelty’

On January 17, 2014, Pushkar was found dead in room number 345 of Hotel Leela Palace in south Delhi. A three-member AIIMS autopsy panel found anti-anxiety drug Alprazolam — popularly known as Alprax — in Pushkar’s body, a fact corroborated by the FBI, which analysed the viscera samples.

A number of conspiracy theories have cropped up over the circumstances leading to her death. Here is a look at the case and the event preceding her alleged suicide.
