Can't interfere: SC dismisses plea seeking probe into Sridevi's death

Singh had approached the apex court after his petition was rejected by the Delhi High Court.

India's Supreme Court on Friday refused to order an independent probe into the death of Bollywood Superstar Sridevi Kapoor in Dubai earlier this year.

A forensic report in Dubai had said she died in the bathtub after losing consciousness.

Singh's lawyer senior advocate Vikas Singh argued before the court that an insurance policy worth Rs 240 crore in was brought in Sridevi's name in Oman and could be encashed only if the actor died in Dubai. He also claimed that he spoke to hotel staff, officials at the hospital where the actor was taken and others associated with the case. He received information that was contrary to what was initially reported.

Sridevi, 54, died of "accidental drowning" on February 24 inside her suite at a luxury hotel in Dubai. There were traces of alcohol present in her body, the report stated. Sunil further added that her death was a matter of national interest and the public and the fans and also the media needs to know as to what actually went down while she breathed her last breaths.

Sridevi was given with full state honours in Mumbai before her body was consigned to flames at the Vile Parle Seva Samaj Crematorium.
