Jaipur(ANI): Actress and BJP MP Hema Malini, who was injured and admitted to Fortis hospital in Jaipur after her Mercedes collided with another car in Dausa district, was discharged from hospital on Saturday.
“On the request of family members, she was discharged around 9:30 AM”, a spokesperson of Fortis Hospital said.
The 66-year-old actress had undergone a surgery for her wounds at the hospital yesterday. She was also treated for a minor fracture on her nose.
A four-year-old girl was killed while five others were injured including the actress when Hema’s car collided with another car on Thursday night in Dausa, 60 km from Jaipur. Mahesh Chand Thakur, who was driving Hema’s car when it met with the accident, has been arrested at Kotwali Thana in Dausa.
An FIR was lodged against the driver, who hails from Vrindavan, under various sections of IPC including 279 (rash driving) and 304 (A) (causing death by negligence not amounting to culpable homicide). Thakaur was yesterday produced before Additional Chief Judicial Magistrate Pallavi Sharma who granted bail to the driver. He was later released on bail.
Hema Malini’s daughter Esha Deol expressed condolences to the minor’s family who lost her life in the accident.
“Ifs and buts would have happen, but it was an accident and at that moment it’s very difficult to do things and whatever happened was very unfortunate,” Esha told the media.
