Indian MP and former UN diplomat Shashi Tharoor has been charged with aiding his wife’s suicide in 2014.
Sunanda Pushkar's unexplained death was initially treated as suicide, but police later said she had been murdered, without naming a suspect.
Police in Delhi have now charged Tharoor with abetment to suicide and cruelty to his spouse, reports the BBC.
Tharoor, an MP with India's main opposition Congress party, married Ms Pushkar, a former Dubai-based businesswoman, in 2010. She was found dead in a five-star hotel in Delhi on 17 January 2014.
The cause of death is still unclear.
The first post-mortem report after her death suggested she may have died of a drug overdose - reports said Ms Pushkar had been on medication.
