Islamabad: Peeved at being at the centre of controversy surrounding Shashi Tharoor, Pakistani journalist Mehr Tarar claimed she had no role in his marital discord with Sunanda Pushkar and was a “victim of conspiracy”. 

Tarar, who has changed her profile picture on Twitter to a burning candle following Pushkar's death on Friday, said she met Tharoor twice—once in India in April and then in Dubai in June last year.

“There was lot of people present there,” the 45-year-old Lahore-based journalist said while speaking to Geo Tez last night.

“When I wrote an article that mentioned him, his wife probably did not like that another woman whom she did not know praised him so much. So she asked him to stop talking to me.  Despite that he (Tharoor) kept following me on Twitter after which she said stop following her (Tarar) on Twitter. 

“I don't know why she had a problem about me talking to her husband over phone or email. The talks I had with him are something that I can talk with anyone and anywhere in the world,” she said.
