Sridevi‘s untimely death has spread a wave of shock across the world. Ever since the forensic reports have revealed that the actress died due to accidental drowning, fans and people at large are speculating at large as to what could have resulted in the legendary actress drowning in a bath tub. Many have started coming up with their own conspiracy theories regarding the same, and one of them is celebrated author, Taslima Nasreen, expressed concern if she committed suicide or someone murdered her.
She tweeted, “Sridevi’s body was found in a bathtub full of water. Hope it is not homicide or suicide [sic].” Needless to say, she received a lot of flak on the internet for her post. However, the author stuck to her stand. While one of them tweeted, “One of the problems with intelligent people is that they find problem in places where there is none!”, someone else wrote, “Why is it written somewhere that in bath tub full of water cardiac arrest can’t happen, stop spreading conspiracy theories when there is none.” Several people criticized Taslima for spreading baseless and pointless rumours and vilifying the tragic incident. Given that Sridevi’s body was sent for autopsy, a practice that’s followed only in cases when death occurs under mysterious or unusual circumstances, Taslima came up with this conspiracy.
Take a look at the tweets below :
Taslima’s doubts further aggravated when forensic reports stated that the actress died due to accidental drowning in a bathtub and that there were traces of alchohol found in her blood. She tweeted, “Healthy adults don’t drown in bathtubs accidentally.” There was certainly no stopping the author, who seemed convinced that there was more to Sridevi’s death than what was being reported. In the meantime, Rajya Sabha MP, Amar Singh added to the conspiracy theory when he said that Sridevi never consumed hard liquor. He told ANI, “Sridevi ji did not drink hard liquor. She used to have wine sometimes like me and like so many others in public life. I have talked to Abu Dhabi’s Sheikh Al Nahyan. He assured me that all formalities and reports are complete. Her mortal remains should reach India by midnight.”
