Following legendary actress Sridevi's tragic and abrupt death in an incident of "accidental drowning", the question has risen as to whether bathtub deaths are a phenomenon and whether they as fatal as in the case of Sridevi. "In many cases, the body lies in the morgue for days as the employer doesn't come to claim it", said Anuradha Vobbiliselty, an advocate who works with migrant workers in Dubai.

"For them, you or me, it's all the same and everyone is equal".

He had also informed that the Indian officials had quickly cancelled Sridevi's passport and prepared other documents, a police clearance that was needed, was slowing down Sridevi's repartition. As soon as the police clearance was given, Thamarassery, who had been flooded with calls from officials and others in the meanwhile, traveled to a government-run mortuary in Dubai. "If someone dies in their room, they will take them to the hospital and then to be checked at the police mortuary", Thamarassery said, reported the Associated Press.

When the clearance came, he traveled to a simple government-run mortuary in a dusty neighborhood of squat, square buildings that house some of Dubai's enormous population of foreign workers, many of whom come from South Asia.

"I have handled so many bodies, even taking some of them to their families at my own cost".
