The first female superstar of the country, Sridevi breathed her last on February 24th. She passed away in her hotel room in the Jumeirah Emirates Towers, Dubai, at 11pm.
As per a report in TOI, Forensic doctors in Dubai concluded that Sridevi died of a heart attack and added there is nothing suspicious about the way the actress passed away.
The Procedures Are Complicated
An independent journalist working in the Gulf told the daily, ''if a person there dies in hospital, the cause of death is known and the procedure to release the body is quick. However, if a death occurs outside a hospital, even a natural death, police have to be informed and they will investigate the death after they first register a case.''
The Official Steps
''In case a body has to be sent overseas for cremation, there are, naturally, even more official steps to be taken, said the journalist Vasudeva Rao.''
Reason Why It's Taking Time
As per procedure, the body is first kept in the morgue at Al Qusais. After forensic examination at the General Department of Forensic Evidence, the body is handed over to the police. After the autopsy report, a death certificate is given and after that the police give their clearance.
Forensic pathologists found nothing suspicious about the manner in which Sridevi died. The procedures to release the body of a person who didn't die in hospital, are, naturally, more complicated. If the person who died is from abroad, the process to release their mortal remains can take even longer.
