Supreme Court today rejected a request for an investigation into Late Bollywood actor Sridevi’s death. On February 24 2018, Sridevi passed away after slipping inside her bathtub in her hotel room in Dubai, where she went to attend Mohit Marwah’s wedding along with her family.
“We can’t interfere with the probe,” Chief Justice of India Dipak Misra told the petitioner.
Petitioner Sunil Singh, a filmmaker, had approached the Supreme Court after his petition was rejected by the Delhi High Court.
According to the forensic report in Dubai, Sridevi had died in the bathtub after losing consciousness.
Vikas Singh, lawyer for the petitioner, argued in court that Sridevi had a Rs. 240 crore insurance policy in her name in Oman and the money could be released only if she died in UAE.
“We had already dismissed two petitions on the same issue. We can’t interfere,” the Chief Justice repeated.
