Sunanda had also told Singh that she had proof of Tharoor and Tarar having spent time together in Dubai in June 2013. She also confided to Singh that she had “taken over the crimes of Tharoor in the IPL matter”

The 51-year-old Sunanda was found dead in her room in the Leela Palace Hotel in the national capital on January 17, 2014.
