Bollywood actress Sridevi Kapoor died of accidental drowning in her hotel room bathtub while under the influence of alcohol, a forensic report revealed on Monday.
Traces of alcohol were found in the body of the 54-year-old actress who lost consciousness before drowning in her bathroom at Emirates Towers hotel in Dubai on Saturday night, the report said.
Dubai Police released the report to her family and an Indian Consulate representative after completing the postmortem examination the day before.
The case has now been transferred to Dubai Public Prosecution for legal action.
A no-objection must now be obtained from prosecution before the body can be handed over to the film star’s family.

According to police sources, investigations are still under way to determine the remaining circumstances related to her death as the forensic report only confirmed the cause of her death.
“In such situations, the case gets referred to the public prosecution to initiate an investigation and ensure that no crime has taken place,” said Hassan Mohsen Elhais, legal consultant with Al Rowaad Advocates and Legal Consultants.
“This is also to confirm that the death was actually due to natural causes or accidental,” he said.
“The autopsy has already been carried out in the morgue. Once this is done there is no need for the body to remain there. The family of the deceased can obtain a letter from the prosecution because the case was referred to the prosecution.
