Subramanian Swamy, Bharatiya Janata Party leader, has claimed Bollywood superstar Sridevi’s death at the age of 54 was not an accident but a murder.
Previously, the Mr. India star's cause of death was revealed to be accidental drowning in hotel's bathtub after initial reports of heart attack, with alcohol later found to have been in her body, according to post-mortem report.

But Subramanian has claimed that Sridevi didn’t drink and that she had a ‘fetish for health’ so wouldn’t have taken drugs either. He further claimed that someone would have had to hold the actress down for her to drown.
He told Times Now,
It is very difficult to die and drown in a bathtub unless somebody pushed you or prevent you from breathing.
He further said that he thought it was strange doctors claimed it to have been a cardiac arrest before the investigation had been completed.
Let’s wait for the prosecution to pronounce it. Facts in media do not appear to be consistent. She never drank hard liquor, how did it enter her system? What happened to CCTV? Doctors suddenly appeared before the media and said she died of heart failure.
MP Amar Singh also said that Sridevi didn’t drink,
In wedding ceremonies, as far as I know, Sridevi ji, she did not consume hard liquor. She used to have wine sometimes like me and like many others in public life.
The superstar was confirmed dead on Saturday evening, February 24 while she was attending her nephew's wedding in Dubai.
