Abu Dhabi: The mystery behind Sridevi’s death is getting confusing with every new development and while we wait for the mortal remains of the late actress to be handed over by the authorities to the family, looks like that might not happen very soon. As it was reported last night that the Public prosecutor was not convinced by the forensic reports and demanded the CCTV footages from the hotel, a report by Gulf news stated that the Dubai Police had begun probing into the matter and Boney Kapoor was being interrogated. Though Khaleej Times states no questioning happened, now reports are coming in that Arjun Kapoor has left for Dubai to stand by his father in these tough times, while the family is awaiting the public prosecutors report to fly Sridevi’s mortal remains back.
As per latest reports of a national news channel, Asianet has reported that injury marks have been found on Sridevi’s head.
According to reports in Khaleej Times, there is still no official update on the permissions required for repatriation of Sridevi’s mortal remains. No confirmation regarding the time it would take to flow back her body has been given out yet.
Earlier, Arjun Kapoor is said to have reached Dubai to visit his father Boney Kapoor and to be with him in this hard time. As one knows Arjun did not share a close relationship with late actress Sridevi and was always cordial towards her but, he has always been close to his father. The actress breathed her last on February 24 night in Dubai and since then Boney has been over there alone while his family, friends and fans are waiting in Mumbai to see one glance of the actress for the last time to bid her goodbye. And so, the Arjun is said to have left Mumbai today morning to Dubai as he doesn’t want to leave his father alone.
Arjun’s PR team also gives an official statement, “Arjun has gone to Dubai this morning to be with his father at the hotel while the formalities are being wrapped up and to oversee the return journey.”
Meanwhile talking about the investigation the Dubai officials are currently said to be questioning Sridevi’s driver. The hotel where Sridevi was found dead is under strict check and high security. Each person visiting the hotel is also being screened by the officials. Even the room in which the actress stayed for two days post the wedding and reportedly found dead in a bathtub has been sealed by the Dubai officials.
