After the crash between BJP MP Hema Malini's Mercedes car and an Alto car in Rajasthan on Thursday, in which a four-year-old girl was killed. The victim's father has claimed that if his daughter was taken to the hospital with Hema Malini, perhaps she would have survived.
The four-year-old, lovingly called Chinni at home, was killed in the accident and her brother is in ICU at a Jaipur hospital with fractures in both arms and both legs.
A doctor, passing by the accident site, rushed the BJP MP to Fortis Hospital in Jaipur. The injured family was left there, and taken by an auto to a local hospital about 30 minutes later.
The injured family was first taken to a government hospital in Dausa.
From there, reportedly, an ambulance took the five-year-old boy and his mother, who have multiple fractures, to the Sawai Madho Singh Hospital in Jaipur about 60 km away.
"Agar woh doctor meri gudia ko bhi Hema malini ke saath hospital le jate, to shayad woh zinda hoti (had the doctor, who took injured Hema Malini to hospital, taken my daughter along with him, she would have been alive), Hanuman Khandelwal told a leading newspaper.
According to reports, the family wasn't happy with the different level of treatments meted out the victims of the accident. The father said that their pain is that the treatment given to his family wasn't the same that is being extended to the MP.
The injured mother was constantly heard asking “Chinni kahan hai? (Where is Chinni)”, and was not informed of her child's death.
A case has been filed against BJP MP’s driver Ramesh Chand Thakur for rash driving.
According to reports, those who are in the Alto car were more seriously injured than the MP, her PA and the driver.
There were five people including two children and two women in the Alto car.
Sonam (4) succumbed to injuries on way to hospital in Dausa, while four others Hanuman Mahajan, his wife Shikha (35), Somil (5), and Seema (40), were shifted to Jaipur's SMS hospital.
Hanuman, who lost his four-year-old daughter, and was among the four injured, filed a complaint with the Kotwali police station in Daus against Ramesh.
