Mr Tharoor and she checked into the Leela yesterday because their home was being painted, the minister’s assistant said. Mr Tharoor returned to their suite at 8:30 pm after spending the day at the mega-conclave organised by his party, the Congress. When she didn’t open the door to her bedroom, he allegedly broke it open with help from her attendant.
Mr Tharoor had tweeted at 8:01 pm today that he would not attend the Jaipur Literature Festival because his wife was unwell.
