Over a year, Sridevi’s superstar breathed her last. On February 24, 2018, the actress died as a result of accidental drowning in a bathtub. Her death deeply shocked her fans and a whole nation. The delay also led to several conspiracy theories in expatriating her body from the UAE. While most of them were forgotten shortly after the last rites of Sridevi, a new claim by Kerala Police Director (Prisons) Rishiraj Singh is introducing an angle of foul play. Singh, in a column for the Kerala Kaumudi newspaper, wrote that the death of Sridevi could not have been caused by drowning. Singh attributes his claims to a conversation that he had ‘out of curiosity’ with his friend, forensic expert Dr. Umadathan. To confirm this, this friend, Dr. Umadathan, is not alive. “My friend and late forensic expert Dr. Umadathan had told me for a long time that the death of Sridevi might have been a murder rather than an accidental death.
