Mehr Tarar denies charges of being 'involved' with Shashi Tharoor; says she will sue Sunanda Pushkar

Mehr Tarar said that she will sue Sunanda Pushkar Tharoor for defamation. "I am going to sue her for calling me an ISI agent."
NEW DELHI: Denying charges of being 'involved' with MoS Shashi Tharoor, Pakistan journalist Mehr Tarar said that she will sue Sunanda Pushkar Tharoor for defamation. "I am going to sue her for calling me an ISI agent. Is it so easy to become an ISI agent?" Tarar asked.

Vehemently stating that she was not 'stalking' Shashi Tharoor, Tarar said, "How can I stalk him when I live in another country? As far as BBM or Twitter is concerned, you can always delete or block someone."

In an interview with Times Now, Tarar said, "Why am I defending myself? If someone has gone insane then why are you asking me questions?" "I am a housewife, I have a kid," she said. "I don't even know where this has come from," she said. "This is completely untrue. She is lying."

Asked about how she knew Tharoor, Tarar said, "I interviewed him. I wrote an article. It's called 'Meeting Shashi Tharoor'. It was a pleasure to meet him. He talked about his life." "His views as a politician fascinated me. I have said that a number of times on my Twitter," she added.

Shashi Tharoor, junior minister for HR, found himself at the centre of an unseemly controversy Wednesday evening after intimate messages, supposedly sent to him by a Pakistani woman journalist, were posted on his widely followed, verified Twitter account.
Tharoor's wife Sunanda Pushkar claimed on Twitter that she was posting from her husband's account, intimate private messages sent to him by Lahore-based journalist Mehr Tarar, to show the world "how she is stalking my husband". Pushkar confirmed to ET that she had posted the messages on Tharoor's Twitter account and her Twitter account had not been hacked.

"Our accounts have not been hacked and I have been sending out these tweets. I cannot tolerate this. This is a Pakistani woman who is an ISI (Inter Services Intelligence) agent, and she is stalking my husband. And you know how men are. He is flattered by the attention. I took upon myself the crimes of this man during IPL (Indian Premier League). I will not allow this to be done to me. I just can't tolerate this. I have nothing more to say," she said, speaking on the phone.

Tharoor posted on Twitter and told ET on the phone that his account has been hacked. He said he wasn't aware that his wife had tweeted anything. "What you are saying is mystifying to me. Let me get to the bottom of this," he said, and excused himself saying he needed to attend a meeting. He did not respond to a text message asking if he wanted to respond to his wife's subsequent quote to this newspaper.
