It has been a couple of months since Sridevi died, but questions surrounding her unnatural death show no signs of dying down. Claims of the life insurance worth Rs 240 crore have again raised the question: Was it an accidental death or a planned murder?
A filmmaker named Sunil Singh, who claimed that Sridevi was murdered, had moved the Supreme Court demanding a thorough investigation into the demise of the Bollywood starlet. The apex court however, dismissed his demand of any further probe.
Although Singh's plea got rejected by SC, news of an insurance money has now raised suspicions about her death. According to Singh's lawyer, an insurance policy worth Rs 240 crore was bought in Sridevi's name in Oman. Apart from the whopping sum, what makes it further interesting is the fact that it could have been encashed only if Sridevi had died in Dubai.
According to the post-mortem report, the actress died due to "accidental drowning" in a bathtub in a Dubai hotel. She was there to attend a family wedding.
While many had suspected foul play in the death of the veteran actress, the new revelation has triggered a series of reactions on social media. Users on Twitter are raising questions on the 'accidental drowning' that caused Sridevi's death, some even going so far as to state that it was a pre-planned murder for the insurance money.
Despite the apparent suspicion, scores of fans refuse to believe that the condition of the insurance and Sridevi dying in Dubai is nothing but a coincidence.
If the filmmaker and his lawyer's claims are not enough, retired ACP Ved Bhushan had recently alleged that underworld don Dawood Ibrahim might have a role in the actress' death.
Raising questions on the investigation of Dubai police, Bhushan had said that Dawood's influence in the foreign country might have caused a faulty probe. The retired cop, who runs a private investigation agency, said that he has evidence to back his claim, which he would reveal at the right time.
"Delhi Police is investigating Sunanda Pushkar's murder case for the past four years and so far, the report of this case is yet to come out. On the other hand, Dubai Police gave a final report within 3-4 days that Sridevi's death was an accidental drowning. This creates a great suspicion in itself. This was a very serious topic and we have reached its investigation. We have a lot of evidence and when the time comes, we will tell the media and the people of India the actual reason of how Sridevi died," Bhushan had told Zee News Hindi Digital.
Meanwhile, people who had been doubting some serious glitch in the investigation around Sridevi's death, have now got new arguments to back up their claims.

Wow!! Sridevi had an Insurance policy worth Rs 240 crore (~$35m) in case she died in Dubai(highly improbable).— vikas(Викас)⏺️ (@vikasF22) May 21, 2018
Strengthens theory that she was murdered to qualify insurance conditions by her husband(under financial distress).
Indian Judiciary is totally compromised by powerful. pic.twitter.com/D5no4O8Wzu
Is it true that Sri Devi was insured for 240Crores in Oman and the condition in insurance policy was insurance money will be paid only if she dies in UAE? If true, another Sunanda Pushkar? Shocking— #Sanjana?? (@sanj9) May 21, 2018
Sridevi Kapoor Had an ₹247 Crore Insurance On Her Life, The Insurance Could Only Be Triggered After Her Death Which Would Directly Benefit Husband Boney Kapoor, Wait Until Some Time Or Even Years But Justice Will Be Served To #Sridevi pic.twitter.com/jpyUStfUJb— #Akash Vaishnav ?

it’s true that #ShriDevi had a Rs 240 crore insurance policy in her name in Oman n the money could be released if she died somewhere in the Gulf Only. And finally she died accidentally in the Gulf only. Can’t say It’s coincidence or a calculated move! #Sridevi #SaveDemocracy— Pawan Sisodia (@iampsisodia) May 19, 2018

Don’t worry you know Sri Devi had a 240 Cr. Life Insurance and why then fingers were raised at Boney Kapoor by Dr. Swamy. These high end accidents and so called suicides need to be probed well. Don’t know what may come from there carcass.— विनिश भारतीय #VHS (@vinish_ind) May 14, 2018
Also pay attention on Sridevi's insurance policy which is payable only in case of death in UAE?? She is an Indian n residing in India, her policy should be payable in case of death in India. She is not a resident of UAE!! ANOTHER STRONG REASON FOR HER MURDER— Samriddhi (@samriddhinair) May 14, 2018
