Sridevi's death was murder, not an accident: Jail DGP

Saturday, July 13, 2019 • Tamil Comments

More than a year after the death of actress Sridevi, which left the entire nation in shock, Kerala Jail DGP Rishiraj Singh, wrote in a media column that his friend, a forensic expert, believed that Sridevi's death was not due to accidental drowning, but was, in fact, a murder. The delay in expatriating her body from UAE fuelled several conspiracy theories at that time as well.

The DGP's article in the column read, "My friend told me that the death might have been a murder. When I asked him out of curiosity over the death, Dr. Umadathan pointed out several circumstantial evidence to prove that the actress' death was not accidental. According to Dr. Umadathan, ‘Even if she drank too much, she would not drown in one-foot deep water in a bathtub'. Without pushing by somebody, a person's legs or head could not drown in one-foot water in the bathtub."

Slamming the DGP's claims, Sridevi's husband Boney Kapoor stated, "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 figment of imagination."
