back to article Indian minister's wife found dead after Twitter rampage

The wife of Indian minister Shashi Tharoor has been found dead in a luxury New Delhi hotel room just days after she took to Twitter to expose her husband’s alleged infidelity.

    She slipped over onto some bullets.....

    How awful

    What a mess. What an awful mess. Condolences to her family.

    Nothing to do with Twitter. She was unwell and this affair must have pushed her to the brink. In retrospect, the twitter accusations seem like a final cry for help, or to make it known to the world what she was really going through. I wonder if in death, she has succeeded in extracting revenge from her cheating husband. His political career is probably done now.

      Not Necessarily Suicide.

      It's not impossible that she died of an accidental overdose. (That's my inference, though; the article below does not actually say so. But there seems to be a prescription medication implicated.)

      TBH, I thought his political career would have been done once he got caught bunging free shares as bribes to his missus - apparently in India such wrong-doing means you have to sit on the naughty step for a year or two before sitting down to play at the top table again.

    Death leaves memories. Hopefully, the memories of this death engineer change.

    Proof at last

    This must Shirley be considered as absolute, undeniable and Darwinian proof that social networking is bad for your health.

    Beware, beware the Ides of march.

    Hmmm she reveals the identity of a (alleged) Pakaistani ISI agent, and shortly afterwards is found dead from unnatural causes... nah there couldn't possibly be any kind of sinsister link between those two events.

      It's the word alleged in your post that makes the rest of it meaningless.

      Maybe she revealed the identity of a Pakistani ISI agent, in which case the rest of your post makes sense. Or maybe it was just the ramblings of a paranoid schizophrenic, in which case there's a damn good case to assume it's suicide. Or maybe something else altogether, in which case fuck knows.

      Whatever it is we don't actually *know* do we? So what was the point of your post exactly?

        I posted it because I could, isn't that the point of nearly every post on any site on the interweb?
