Recently, Kerala Jail DGP Rishiraj Singh in a column for Kerala Kaumudi wrote that his forensics expert friend thinks that Sridevi’s death might not have been due to accidental drowning but a murder. Reacting to the same, film producer and Sridevi’s husband Boney Kapoor said he doesn’t want to address “such stupid stories.”
“I don’t want to react to such stupid stories. There is no need to react because such stupid stories keep coming. Basically, this is somebody’s fragment of imagination,” in.com quoted Kapoor as saying.
Singh, in a recent column for the newspaper Kerala Kaumudi, wrote that his forensics expert friend thinks that Sridevi’s death ‘might not have been due to accidental drowning’. There was circumstantial evidence at the scene, he wrote in his column. He wrote, “My friend and the late forensic expert Dr Umadathan had told me long back that Sridevi’s death might have been a murder and not an accidental death. This he told me when I asked him about Sridevi’s death, out of curiosity.”
“He also pointed out certain facts to back his claims. According to him, a person will never drown in one-foot deep water, however much he drinks. He will drown only if somebody holds his both legs and sinks his head into the water,” wrote the IPS officer. These facts have however been analysed ad nauseam and there’s no certainty about them.
Since Sridevi’s untimely death in February last year, there have been several conspiracy theories on the way the actress died. The superstar was in UAE to attend a family wedding when news of her death left the entire nation in shock. The delay in expatriation of her body from the UAE also led many to believe that there was something unusual about the way Sridevi died.
Sridevi’s post-mortem report by the UAE authorities confirmed drowning as the cause of death. While that should have been the end of all speculation, fans of Sridevi still find it hard to let go of their superstar, even a year after she breathed her last.
