The Dubai police on Tuesday handed over the letters for the release of Bollywood actress Sridevi's body to her family for embalming, the Indian consulate revealed. The body is expected to reach India by Tuesday night.
The prosecution has stated that there is no mystery behind Sridevi's death and reiterated that she drowned. It also stressed that the case would be reopened only if there is an official complaint.
Meanwhile, it has emerged that Sridevi had a cut on the head, according to the forensic report. However, the injury was not the reason behind the death. The Dubai police have reportedly confiscated her husband Boney Kapoor's passport.
The 54-year-old actor, known as Indian cinema's first female superstar, passed away in her hotel room in the Jumeirah Emirates Towers late on Saturday, leaving family, friends and fans stunned.
Sridevi's stepson and actor Arjun Kapoor arrived in Dubai on Tuesday to be with his father Boney Kapoor as he wraps up formalities and takes the body home to Mumbai.
"Dubai Police has handed over the Consulate and the family members letters for the release of the mortal remains of the Indian cinema icon Sridevi Boney Kapoor so that they can proceed for embalming," the Consulate General of India tweeted.
Sridevi was in Dubai for a family wedding and had stayed back after the ceremonies. Her husband had flown back to Mumbai with their younger daughter Khushi but returned to Dubai to surprise her.
