The Supreme Court on Friday dismissed a plea seeking investigation into the death of veteran actress Sridevi, who drowned in a bathtub in a Dubai hotel in February.

A bench comprising Chief Justice Dipak Misra, Justice A M Khanwilkar and Justice D Y Chandrachud rejected the plea even as senior counsel Vikas Singh raised questions on how could a 5.7 foot tall person drown in a 5.1 foot bathtub.

Singh sought that all documents related to the 54-year-old actress’ death — medical and investigation — carried out by the Dubai Police be brought to India. He requested that the matter be investigated by an independent agency.
