Even after it was confirmed that veteran actress Sridevi had passed away due to accidental drowning, there havw been uncanny theories surfacing now and then. The world was shocked when the news of the legendary actresses death broke. From an alleged Dawood Ibrahim involvement to Rs 240 crore insurance, various reports say that Sridevi demise wasn’t a natural death but a “planned murder”. These reports are insensitive about the feelings of the actress’s family and loved ones who feel the loss every day.
Some media reports say that Retired ACP Ved Bhushan’s opinion is that her death is a ‘planned murder’ and has alleged that underworld don Dawood Ibrahim may be involved in it. In order to clear his doubts, he reportedly even stayed in the same hotel, Jumeirah Emirates Towers, Dubai with his private investigation agency for a night. The hotel, too, is apparently owned by Dawood Ibrahim. He is now reportedly planning to file an appeal in the Supreme Court on this investigation so that the death of Sridevi can be re-examined.
Another claim is from filmmaker Sunil Singh, who said that Sridevi was murdered. He had moved the Supreme Court demanding a thorough investigation into the demise of the Bollywood’s fermale superstar. The apex court however, dismissed his demand of any further probe.
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 Sridevi’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.
