Thiruvananthapuram: The news of the death of Sunanda Pushkar, wife of Union Minister Shashi Tharoor, came as a shock last night to the people in Thiruvananthapuram which Tharoor contested and won easily in his electoral debut in 2009 Lok Sabha polls.
   


Congress party in the state is yet to react to the development as most leaders of the party, including Chief minister Oommen Chandy and Home Minister and KPCC president Ramesh Chennithala, are in Delhi in connection with the AICC meeting.
    
Though politicians of different hues are yet to react to the news, police stepped up protection to Tharoor's constituency office in the heart of the city as soon as the news of his wife's death in a Delhi hotel spread.
    
The Tharoor couple, marrried in August 2010, were seen together in the city a few days ago coming out of the famous Sree Padmanabhaswamy temple.
    
The local media are agog with reports that Sunanda had undergone a medical test in a super speciality hospital here before she left the city after her last visit. However, the hospital is yet to confirm that report.
