The “first female superstar” of Bollywood had collapsed in a bathroom at the hotel where the family was staying. According to Gulf News, the report said traces of alcohol were found in her body, which may have led to the accident. The forensics report has been released by Dubai police to Sridevi's family and the Indian consulate. “The investigation is still going on to determine the circumstances surrounding the accident as the forensic report only says that she drowned,” the Dubai based English newspaper reported quoting an official. This implies further delays in repatriating the body of the actor.
