New Delhi: While Sridevi’s death in Dubai is shrouded in mystery, Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) leader Subramanian Swamy on Tuesday made a sensational charge, describing the actress’ death as a “murder”.
The BJP MP further claimed that she could have been force-fed alcohol as the superstar never touched hard drinks.
It is very difficult to die and drown in a bathtub unless somebody pushed you or prevent you from breathing.” Swamy told a news channel.
Let’s wait for the prosecution to pronounce it. Facts in media do not appear to be consistent. She never drank hard liquor, how did it enter her system? What happened to CCTV? Doctors suddenly appeared before the media and said she died of heart failure,” Swamy later told a news agency.
He added that we must also focus on the relation between “cinema actresses” and underworld don “Dawood (Ibrahim)”. “Cinema actresses aur Dawood ke jo rishte hain, naajayaz rishte hain us par hamein thoda dhyaan dena padega,” Swamy added.
In a shocking twist to her sudden death, a Dubai Police forensic report had on Monday stated 54-year-old Sridevi died due to “accidental drowning” in the bathtub of her hotel room in Dubai before her surprise dinner date with husband and film producer Boney Kapoor, a day after media reported that she had died following a cardiac arrest on Saturday night.
A Dubai Police forensic report stated that Sridevi had passed away due to accidental drowning. Another twist came with the mention in the forensic report of traces of alcohol in her blood — with some media reports claiming that it was found to have been at “elevated levels”.
