Police in Dubai have closed the case into the death of Bollywood star Sridevi Kapoor after handing over her body to relatives. Police did not release the body till the post-mortem was completed.

However, the full post-mortem report has not yet been released to the public and will be expected to explain how the original report of cardiac arrest and the listing of “accidental drowning” are linked.

The remains were embalmed and sent to India for her funeral.

Sridevi, 54, was found dead in her hotel bathtub in Dubai. Earlier it was reported that she died of cardiac arrest, but later emerged that the cause of death was “due to accidental drowning following loss of consciousness”.

A large number of her fans have gathered at her home to pay their last respects. Her cremation is scheduled for Wednesday, the Press Trust of India news agency reported.
