New Delhi, March 12: Pakistani jourlist Mehr Tarar is likely to be questioned over the murder of Congress MP Shashi Tharoor’s wife Sunda Pushkar, police said on Thursday. Tarar has, however, refused to come to India to join the probe but was willing to cooperate.

“Tarar is a relevant person in the case... If necessary, she will be examined,” Delhi Police Commissioner B.S. Bassi said of the jourlist who was said to be a close friend of Tharoor. Tarar, 47, said she was not ready to come to India but would be happy to answer questions. “I would like to answer any question Delhi Police have for me but I will not come to India for the probe,” Tarar told CNN-IBN news channel over telephone. “They (Delhi Police) want to contact me directly or through the foreign office. Whatever the protocol is... I am ready to answer their questions,” she said. Asked why she was being linked to the case, Tarar said: “My biggest mistake was to respond to Sunda on Twitter... “If I will be concerned about anything, I will share it with Delhi Police. But no one from Delhi Police has spoken to me so far.” (IANS)
