Sridevi died due to accidental drowning: Forensic report


Dubai police has released a forensic report that says that the Bollywood veteran actress Sridevi died due to accidental drowning.

The report also added that trace of alcohol was found in the actress’s body. “She was influenced by alcohol, lost her balance, fell into the bathtub and drowned,” as per Gulf News.

Bollywood actress Sridevi passed away in her hotel room in the Jumeirah Emirates Towers, Dubai, at 11 pm on Saturday, reported ANI.

An autopsy was conducted earlier today and the police had handed over the report to the family and the Indian consulate.

The forensic report, however, did not confirm she suffered cardiac arrest as media reported earlier. "The investigation is still going on to determine the circumstances surrounding the accident as the forensic report only says that she drowned," Gulf News quoted an official as saying.
