Sridevi's autopsy complete, body to be flown back to India today

DUBAI: The autopsy of superstar Sridevi, who passed away here after a cardiac arrest , has been completed and her body would be flown back to India on Monday.

The actor, wife of producer Boney Kapoor, died late last night reportedly due to cardiac arrest in Dubai, where she had gone along with her family to attend her nephew Mohit Marwah's wedding.

"Boney Kapoor, Jhanvi, Khushi and the entire Kapoor, Ayyappan and Marwah family is deeply bereaved and shocked with the untimely loss of Sridevi Kapoor," the statement, issued this evening by the Yash Raj Films (YRF) on behalf of the family, said.

"They thank the entire media for their prayers, support and sensitivity during their time of grief. Late Sridevi Kapoor's body will arrive in India tomorrow," it said.

The mortal remains are expected to be brought by a chartered flight.

UAE officials have revealed that Sridevi's autopsy has been completed and the family is now awaiting laboratory reports conducted by the General Department of Forensic Evidence, Dubai, Khaleej Times reported.

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 were quoted by the report.

Officials also said that as per usual protocols, these tests take up to 24 hours in the case a person has died outside a hospital in Dubai. The same safety and administrative protocols are being followed by the police in this case as well.

She reportedly had a fainting spell in her bathroom and was immediately rushed to Rashid Hospital in Dubai, the report said.

The hotel, however, refused to comment on the matter and an employee stated that the matter is under police investigation.

The Padma Shri awardee, who had an illustrious career spanning over four decades, passed away last night. She was 54.
