Bollywood actress Sridevi died yesterday in Dubai. It was reported that she suffered from cardiac arrest around 11 pm in hotel’s bathroom.
However the forensic report issues in Dubai says that she died of accidental drowning. Dubai Police said initial investigation shows that Sridevi drowned following loss of consciousness in the bathtub of her hotel room.
They found traces of alcohol in her body and this may have led to the accident. “The investigation is still going on to determine the circumstances surrounding the accident as the forensic report only says that she drowned,” an official told Gulf News.
Dubai Police has transferred the case to Dubai Public Prosecution, which will carry out regular legal procedures followed in such cases, according to the Dubai Media Office.
As of now, Indian officials are doing the paperwork related to the repatriation of the body from Dubai to India. Her body is likely to reach Mumbai in a few hours following which the last rites will be held.
