News of the untimely death of actor Sridevi Kapoor that took the Nation by storm has more findings that add to the mystery already surrounding it. Original reports from UAE attributed the death to cardiac arrest and routine procedures and forensic tests delayed the process of releasing the mortal remains of the actress.
Newer reports suggested that death was due to ‘Accidental drowning’ in the bathtub possibly due to traces of alcohol that were found in Sridevi’s blood, and speculated that the actor might have fallen into the bathtub in a state of inebriation, fainted and died due to drowning.
Further, news reports revealed that her daughter and husband had returned to Mumbai, but she stayed back. The Khaleej Times reported that Boney Kapoor returned from India to Dubai to surprise his wife. It said Kapoor discovered her unconscious in the bathtub filled with water. She was rushed to the hospital where she was declared dead on arrival.
The Dubai Public Prosecution still continues its interrogations in a bid to eliminate any trace of foul play. It is believed that the DPP may order another postmortem if it deems necessary. The body continues to remain at the mortuary of the General Department of Forensic Evidence, Dubai; while the grief-stricken fans and family continue to wait in Mumbai.
