Following the completion of post-mortem analysis, #DubaiPolice today stated that the death of Indian actress #Sridevi occurred due to drowning in her hotel apartment’s bathtub following loss of consciousness.
Amidst this fresh twist, added to the unexpected death of the actress, Dubai Police Prosecutor called Sridevi's husband Boney Kapoor and the Jumeirah Emirates Towers Hotel staff to conduct a brief questioning session. It was in effort to get a clear idea of the exact circumstances which led to the drowning of the actress.
The investigators are also reportedly looking into Sridevi's phone call records.
Meanwhile, the details of the forensic report have caused additional delay in the clearance for repatriation on Monday and Sridevi's body is yet to be sent for emblaming.
If latest media reports turn out to be true, her mortal remains will reach Mumbai at around 5 am on Tuesday only after clearance from Dubai Prosecution magistrate.
