According to reports, the Kerala Kaumudi newspaper quoted a jail DGP, Rishiraj Singh alleging that the actress’ death was not an accident but a murder. He reportedly claimed that his late friend, forensic surgeon Dr Umadathan claimed that the death might have been a murder and pointed out several circumstantial pieces of evidence to prove that “the actress’ death was not accidental.”
He claimed that the late doctor reasoned that “she would not drown” in one-foot water in a bathtub “without pushing by someone.”
Reports also allege that a retired ACP of Delhi Police named Ved Bhushan claimed he wasn’t allowed to have a look at Sridevi’s hotel room. However, he ruled out the possibility of ‘accidental drowning’ – as stated in Sridevi’s post-mortem report, by enacting the possible events in the adjacent room. Bhushan even went on record to slam the Dubai Police’s forensic report, stating that the findings were unsatisfactory and that there were many questions that went unanswered.
