Delhi High Court refuses to entertain PIL seeking probe into Sridevi’s demise

As per reports, the Delhi High Court on March 9, 2018 refused to entertain a PIL for a probe into the recent death of veteran Bollywood actress Sridevi, stating the authorities in India and Dubai have already looked into the incident.

A bench of Acting Chief Justice Gita Mittal and Justice C Hari Shankar dismissed the petition which had claimed that the actor’s death was a matter of national interest.

The plea was moved by Uttar Pradesh native Sunil Singh who claims to have acted in and directed a few movies and runs cinemas and visual-effect studios.

The petitioner has alleged that on enquiries made by him from the hotel staff, officials of the hospital where the 54-year-old actor was taken and others associated with the matter, he had received information which was contrary to what was reported in the media. Due to this, he had filed the petition for a probe into her death, it said.
