Sunanda Pushkar had called Mehr Tarar an ISI agent and accused her of trying to create trouble in her marriage.

New Delhi: Pakistani journalist Mehr Tarar, who had a spat with Union HRD Minister Shashi Tharoor's wife on Twitter, has expressed shock over Pushkar's death. Pushkar had called Mehr Tarar an ISI agent and accused her of trying to create trouble in her marriage.

"What the hell. Sunanda. Oh my God," Tarar tweeted after Sunanda Pushkar was found dead on Friday evening. "I just woke up and read this. I'm absolutely shocked. This is too awful for words. So tragic I don't know what to say. Rest in peace, Sunanda," Tarar added.

Sunanda was found dead on Friday evening at Delhi's Leela Palace Hotel. Sunanda had been suffering from emotional turmoil as well as physical ailments like Lupus and stomach TB.

Her body was found at around 8:30 PM on Friday evening in their hotel room number 345 after he returned from the All India Congress Committee meeting. The tragic death has sent shockwaves through the national capital and the political class.

Just 12 hours ago, Sunanda had been embroiled in a very public spat on Twitter. The Twitter war was nothing short of sensational. It started after a string of tweets from Shashi Tharoor's Twitter handle which was apparently hacked and then from Sunanda. The tweets were Mehr and it was followed by a response from Mehr Tarar.

Sunanda had accused Mehr Tarar of having a relationship with her husband. She had accused Tarar of stalking her husband and of being an ISI agent. "We have a hacker and she is stalking my husband. She has hacked into my husband's computer, into my computer. She is an ISI agent," Sunanda Pushkar had said on Thursday.

Finally a Facebook post from the couple claimed that all was well. Yet just 12 hours later after the post, Sunanda was dead.
