Dawood and 240 cr insurance REIGNITE Sridevi DEATH MYSTERY
Hyderabad: Sridevi's sudden demise left a void in the hearts of millions of her fans. Entire nation united in mourning the death of the first female superstar of the country on Feb 24. The circumstances under which she apparently breathed her last raised questions on the cause of her death then. Three months later, cropping up of few shocking reports might make one to rethink if the "Chandani" actress died of a natural death?
Sunil Singh, the petitioner, who is a filmmaker too had moved the top court challenging a Delhi High Court order rejecting his plea seeking investigation into the death of veteran actress.
A bench comprising Chief Justice Dipak Misra, Justice A.M. Khanwilkar and Justice D.Y.Chandrachud rejected the plea even as senior counsel Vikas Singh raised questions on how could a 5.7 foot tall person drown in a 5.1 foot bathtub.
According to Singh's lawyer, Vikas Singh, an insurance policy worth Rs 240 crore was bought in Sridevi's name in Oman. The reason to suspect Sri's death is not the policy but a clause which says the amount could have been encashed only if the actress had died in Dubai.
According to the post-mortem report, the actress died due to "accidental drowning" in a bathtub in a Dubai hotel. She was there to attend a family wedding.
As reported earlier, a retired ACP Ved Bhushan also alleged that underworld don Dawood Ibrahim might have a role in the actress' death.
Only time will unfold the mystery surrounding Sri's death, if there is any but if these reports has an iota of truth to them than it would be even more heartbreaking than the demise of the 54-year-old diva who ruled the silver screen and hearts of her loyal fans for decade.
