Sridevi’s body likely to be flown home on Monday

The body of legendary Indian actress Sridevi, who died in Dubai on Saturday night, is likely to be flown home on Monday.

Sridevi’s body could not be repatriated on Sunday as the final investigation reports from Dubai Police were not ready by late evening, officials dealing with the legal formalities told Gulf News.

By 5.45pm, official sources confirmed that Sridevi would not be sent home on Sunday. They also expressed hopes that the repatriation can be completed by Monday.

Authorities in Dubai had been trying to assist Sridevi’s family to send her remains to Mumbai at the earliest on Sunday.

Indian business tycoon Mukesh Ambani had reportedly offered to fly her back home in his private jet.

As confirmed earlier by Indian Ambassador to the UAE Navdeep Singh Suri and Consul General of India in Dubai Vipul, Indian Consulate representatives had been coordinating with Dubai Police and other authorities concerned.

However, the procedures could not be completed before office hours in local departments here, sources said.

A team of officials from Dubai Police conducted the postmortem and forensic investigation. However, the final reports were not issued to start the remaining procedures for repatriation like embalming by evening.

“This will take time,” an official source said around 4:15pm.

 

Sridevi reportedly died of a heart attack after collapsing in a bathroom at Jumeirah Emirates Towers late on Saturday night.

The actress and family were in town after attending her nephew and actor Mohit Marwah which took place in Ras Al Khaimah.

A relative representing the family was allowed inside along with a representative of the Indian Consulate to talk to the officials at the mortuary of Dubai Police Headquarters.
