The Kapoor family's long wait to bring back the mortal remains of Sridevi came to an end as the Dubai Police allowed the repatriation of her body yesterday. The Dubai Public Prosecution closed the case after stressing that all procedures were followed, a day after they announced that the actor's death occurred due to "accidental drowning" at the Jumeirah Emirates Towers Hotel on February 24.

The mortal remains of the actor arrived at the aviation terminal in Kalina at 9.30 pm last evening, in Anil Ambani's Embraer jet. Accompanying Boney Kapoor were brother Sanjay Kapoor and son Arjun Kapoor, who had flown to Dubai yesterday morning to be by his side. Anil and Sonam Kapoor were present at the airport along with Ambani.

The last journey will commence at 2 pm from the sports club to Vile Parle Seva Samaj crematorium and the funeral is scheduled for 4 pm at Vile Parle's Pawan Hans. A source close to the family said, "Anil and Sanjay are overseeing the arrangement of the condolence meet and the funeral."
