Sridevi drowned in bathtub following loss of consciousness – Dubai Police


MUMBAI: India mourned Bollywood superstar Sridevi Kapoor after her death in Dubai aged just 54, as police in the emirate said she drowned in her hotel bathtub.

The body of Sridevi, one of the biggest names in Hindi cinema, had been due to be brought back to Mumbai on Monday (Feb 26) by charter flight.

Initial reports had cited a heart attack as the cause of her death late Saturday (Feb 24) at a hotel in the emirate, where she had been attending a nephew’s wedding.

”The death of Indian actress Sridevi occurred due to drowning in her hotel apartment’s bathtub following loss of consciousness,” Dubai police tweeted, citing an autopsy report.

Police have now referred the case to the public prosecutor.
