The Supreme Court today rejected a petition for an independent probe into Bollywood legend Sridevi's death.

Sridevi breathed her last on February 24.

A bench of Chief Justice Dipak Misra and justices A M Khanwilkar and D Y Chandrachud dismissed the plea saying, "We can't interfere with the probe."

"We had already dismissed two petitions on the same issue," the Chief Justice added.

In his petition, Sunil had stated that Sridevi's death was of national interest.

Context

Previously, MEA had ruled out foul play in her demise

Putting an end to all the speculations, the Ministry Of External Affairs had in March ruled out the possibility of anything suspicious in Sridevi's sudden demise in Dubai.

Dubai Public Prosecution had attributed her death to accidental drowning after three days of the investigation. It was earlier reported that Sridevi died of a massive cardiac arrest.
