Sunanda Pushkar, who is seen with Minister of State for External Affairs Shashi Tharoor at social gatherings, is involved with a construction business in Dubai, and had been with her parents in Mathura recently.
Pushkar, whose stake in the Kochi IPL team is valued at an estimated Rs 70 crore, belongs to a family from Bomai, 8 km from Sopore in the Kashmir Valley.
Pushkar's father, Lt Col (retd) P N Dass said that the family migrated to Jammu in 1990 after militants torched their home in the Valley. He said Pushkar's first husband was a Kashmiri man who worked for a hotel in Delhi. Following a divorce, Pushkar went to Dubai, where she married again. Her second husband died in an accident in Delhi, he said.
Pushkar, a graduate of Government College for Women, Srinagar, has two brothers, one of whom works for a bank; the other is in the Army. Her father retired from the Army in 1983.
