The Dubai Media Office said on Tuesday that the investigation into actor Sridevi’s death was complete, upon which her body will now be handed over to her family.

It added that the case into her death has been closed.

The tweet translates to, “The decision to release the body came after all the investigations and procedural matters followed in such incidents were completed, in order to determine all its circumstances and ensure that justice was done within the framework of the law.”

On Monday, her death certificate was released, which stated the actor died due to ‘accidental drowning’.

The Dubai Police said that Sridevi’s death was the result of her drowning in her hotel bathtub after losing consciousness.

Although the pages of the death certificate accessed by media do not mention it, Gulf News reported that traces of alcohol were found in Sridevi's blood samples.

Her body has been handed over to the family after the embalming procedure. Reports claim that her remians will reach India on Tuesday night. 

The actor born as Shree Amma Yanger Ayappan in 1963 in Sivakasi in Tamil Nadu, is survived by her husband and two daughters Jhanvi and Khushi.

Sridevi made her debut as a child artist in Kandhan Karunai at the mere age of four. She went on to play more roles across the southern industries before making her debut with Julie in Bollywood, in a Hindi remake of the Malayalam hit Chattakari.

Sridevi soon became a leading actor in the south and Hindi films and was known for her ability to act, dance as well as comic timing. She acted with the likes of Amitabh Bachchan, Kamal Haasan, Rajinikanth and many more superstars but always held her own on screen.

While she moved from strength to strength in the film world, her personal life was mired in controversy. She fell in love with the much-married producer Boney Kapoor, giving ample fodder for the gossip mills. The two of them married in 1996 and Sridevi took a break from films. The 1997 Hindi film Judaai was her last major picture.

But the actor was back with a bang in 2012 with English Vinglish, once again proving that she still had a hold over the box-office. She also became active in the television space and made an appearance on Aamir Khan's ‘Satyameva Jayate’ episode.

Sridevi starred in two other films, Puli (Tamil) and Mom (Hindi) after her comeback.

She was awarded the Padma Shri in 2013.
