Dubai, February 27 (Khaleej times): Actress Sridevi, who died in a Dubai hotel room last Saturday, reportedly had a fainting spell in her bathroom and was immediately rushed to Rashid Hospital in Dubai.
The hotel, however, refused to comment on the matter and an employee stated that it is under police investigation. Sources in the Indian Consulate said that she was brought dead to the hospital.
Since morning, there has been no major development in Sridevi’s repatriation to India. Representatives of Kapoor family are meeting with the authorities to get the clearance.
Indian Consulate officials and family members of Boney Kapoor and Sridevi are waiting to receive a clearance letter from the Dubai Public Prosecution.
Speaking to Khaleej Times, officials at Indian Consulate assured that the Dubai Police were following a usual protocol and not delaying the process. They need to be 100 per cent sure before handing over the body to the family. Considering the highly sensitive nature of the case, Dubai Police is leaving no stone unturned to help the family, said the official.
Tuesday is the third day after Sridevi’s death and her body is still in the mortuary in Dubai. Dubai Police has moved the case to Dubai Public Prosecutor and it needs clearance before being taken to the embalming unit in Muhaisna.
As per standard police investigation procedures, director and husband of the late Sridevi, Director Boney Kapoor, only provided his testimony on Sunday morning.
The conversation between police and the director took place when her body was discovered at Jumeirah Emirates Tower Hotel on the night of her death.
However, he was not called by the police on Monday for further interrogation. All media reports regarding further questioning are baseless, according to sources in the Dubai Police. Khaleej Times has confirmed reports on this matter.
