“My friend and the late forensic expert Dr Umadathan had told me long back that Sri Devi’s death might have been a murder and not an accidental death. This he told me when I asked him about Sri Devi’s death, out of curiosity,” wrote Singh.


“He also pointed out certain facts to back his claims. According to him, a person will never drown in one-foot deep water, however much he drinks. He will drown only if somebody holds his both legs and sinks his head into the water,” wrote the IPS officer.
