Sridevi’s death, an ‘accidental drowning’ : report

Dubai Police said initial investigation shows that Bollywood actress Sridevi drowned in the bathtub of her hotel room, the gulfnews.com reports.

They found traces of alcohol 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 told Gulf News.

The police are trying to piece together the sequence of events and find out who was with her when the incident happened, the Gulf News adds.

Meanwhile, according to a Khaleej Times report, Sridevi's body is expected to be ready to be flown back to India this afternoon in Anil Ambani's private jet.

Sridevi, 54, died in her hotel room in Dubai on Saturday evening and a medical team failed to revive her. She was declared dead when she was taken to hospital, Indian ambassador in UAE Navdeep Suri told NDTV. Sridevi's brother-in-law and actor Sanjay Kapoor said she had no history of heart ailment.
