In a new twist to the prevailing mystery shrouding veteran actor Sridevi’s sudden death, Dubai Police have said that initial investigations showed that Bollywood actress Sridevi drowned following loss of consciousness in the bathtub of her Jumeirah Emirates Towers hotel room in Dubai.

Traces of alcohol have been found 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 has revealed.

The police are trying to piece together the sequence of events and find out who was with her when the incident happened. The Dubai Police has transferred the case to Dubai Public Prosecution, which will carry out regular legal procedures followed in such cases. The report comes as preparations in Mumbai are under way for Sridevi’s funeral, which is to take place later today.
