Jaipur: Relatives of the four-year-old girl, killed in a car crash with Hema Malini’s Mercedes, have alleged that the child was lying at the accident spot for nearly 20 minutes and could have been saved had she been taken to the hospital along with the BJP MP.
“Hema Malini was taken to a hospital in Dausa by a doctor immediately after the incident. He then took her to Fortis hospital while Sonam was lying at the spot for 15-20 minutes. Nobody asked about her,” alleged Shirish Gupta, uncle of Sonam who succumbed to her injuries on way to hospital in Dausa last night.
“Had she (Sonam) been taken to the hospital along with Hema Malini, she would have been saved,” Gupta said.
Sonam’s father Hanuman Mahajan, his wife Shikha (35), Somil and Seema were shifted to the SMS hospital here.
Mahajan has filed a complaint with the Kotwali police station in Dausa against Ramesh Chand Thakur, who was driving Hema’s car when it met with the accident in Dausa, 60 km from here.
Thakur was arrested at Kotwali Thana in Dausa. Gupta said Sonam and others were taken to hospital by police.
The 66-year-old actress-turned politician underwent a surgery for her wounds at Fortis hospital here and was doing fine, doctors attending to her said. She was also treated for a minor fracture on her nose.
