Supreme Court dismisses plea seeking probe into actress Sridevi’s death!

The Supreme Court on Friday dismissed a plea seeking investigation into the death of veteran actress Sridevi, who drowned in a bathtub in a Dubai hotel on February 24 this year.

A bench headed by Chief Justice Dipak Misra said they have dismissed similar pleas in the past and cannot entertain the petition now.

Sunil Singh argued in his plea that Sridevi was 5 feet 7 inches tall and the bathtub in which she drowned was only 5 feet long. Dubai Police said Sridevi died from drowning in the hotel bathtub “following the loss of consciousness” after a post-mortem analysis.

Singh’s lawyer senior advocate Vikas Singh argued before the court that an insurance policy worth Rs 240 crore in was brought in Sridevi’s name in Oman and could be encashed only if the actor died in Dubai.

 He moved the apex court after the Delhi High Court had on March 9 refused to entertain his PIL to probe her death, saying authorities in India and Dubai had already looked into the incident.

Sunil had earlier claimed that he too was in Dubai around the time of Sridevi’s death and had enquired about it from the hotel staff. Apparently, their claims and statements were different than what the initial reports and investigations had revealed.

Sridevi died on January 24, 2018 in Dubai due to accidental drowning in bathtub. She was 54. The actress was in Dubai to attend her nephew’s Mohit Marwah’s wedding.

The actress was one of the famous actress of Hindi Cinema. She ruled the hearts of millions. Her sudden death was a huge shock for her family and her industry colleagues. She was cremated with full state honours, wrapping her mortal remains with a tricolour.
