He has also termed it as “misrepresentations and outright lies”. Minister has also said he has nothing to hide over the death of his wife Sunanda Pushkar in 2014. “Exasperating farrago of distortions, misrepresentations and outright lies being broadcast by an unprincipled showman masquerading as a journalist,” Tharoor had said in a Facebook post last night. While the case is being probed by the Delhi Police, the issue was highlighted again with new English channel Republic TV coming out with audio tapes which purported to show that the body of Pushkar was moved from one place to another at Leela Palace Hotel in New Delhi on the night of her death on January 14, 2014. Addressing reporters here, Tharoor said he had made a few tweets after the news channel came out with its report. "This deeply angers and saddens me when someone exploits a personal tragedy. I have nothing to hide and have fully cooperated with the police and so far the probe has not been establish the crime or if any murder occurred," said Tharoor. In a series of tweets, he wrote, “Came out to find dozens of cameras. Tried to say a few words to them but kept being interrupted by a cretin seeking to make the news, not report it.” Angry over the TV channel’s report, he wrote: “Pathetic too see the depths to which some will sink to attract TRPs. I have nothing to hide from the police and the courts but nothing to say to such people.” “A so-called journalist comes with an agenda to disrupt the rest of the media in order to create attention for his channel. Not interested in truth,” Shashi Tharoor added in his latest tweet.
