    Tharoor was admitted to the ICU at around 3.30 a.m. Saturday and later shifted to a ward at the All India Institute of Medical Sciences (AIIMS).

    An exhausted looking Tharoor left the hospital in an ambulance at around 2.30 p.m.

    AIIMS spokesperson Amit Gupta said the minister’s condition was stable, his ECG was normal and hypertension was the cause of the discomfort.

    Tharoor was admitted to AIIMS after his wife Sunanda Pushkar was found dead under mysterious circumstances in her room at The Leela Palace hotel in south Delhi Friday.

    Doctors said that Pushkar’s autopsy was over and the report would be handed over to the sub-divisional magistrate soon.

    There was speculation over Tharoor and Pushkar’s relationship after the two declared they were “happily married” following public airing of tweets that hinted at an extra-marital relationship and alleged involvement of a Pakistani woman.
