Claims

Basis of claim? Dr. Umadathan, who had conducted Sridevi's autopsy

Furthermore, Rishiraj reasoned that a person can never drown in merely one-foot deep water, irrespective of how drunk they are.

"Without any external force, no one will die in a bathtub due to drowning," he wrote in his column.

Notably, Rishiraj made the claims on the basis of the inputs given by his friend, late forensic expert Dr. Umadathan, who had conducted Sridevi's autopsy.

Circumstantial evidence prove Sridevi's death was not accidental: Rishiraj

"My friend Umadathan told me that the death might have been a murder. When I asked him out of curiosity, Dr. Umadathan pointed out several circumstantial evidence to prove that the actress' death was not accidental," Rishiraj wrote in Kerala Kaumudi newspaper.
