The police in Delhi charged Indian MP and former UN diplomat Shashi Tharoor with aiding his wife’s suicide in 2014.

The death of his wife, Sunanda Pushkar, was initially treated as suicide. However, the police later said she had been murdered. They did not name any suspect.

Now, they have charged Mr Tharoor, who belongs to the Congress party, with aiding suicide and cruelty towards his spouse.

Mr Tharoor tweeted about what he called a “preposterous charge-sheet”.
