On Tuesday, Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) leader Subramaniam Swamy sparked a major controversy by alleging that Sridevi was murdered.
“It doesn’t appear to me the facts that have come out in the media are consistent. She never drank hard liquor so how did it enter her system? Was she forcibly fed? What happened to the CCTV, we have not heard a word about that. It suddenly appears in the media that she died of heart failure as if it’s pre-planned. It is very difficult to die and drown in a bathtub unless somebody pushed you or prevent you from breathing.”
Swamy further added: “If you ask my opinion I’ll tell you that I think it’s murder.”
