The accident killed four-year-old Sonam and left four other members of her family seriously injured. The BJP MP suffered a fracture to her nose.

In a tragic incident, Bharatiya Janata Party MP Hema Malini's official car crashed into another Alto car in Rajasthan on Thursday killing a four-year-old girl.

While most of the reports focused on the MP who was given VIP treatment at a Jaipur hospital, the girl and her family were far from the media glare and allegedly ignored by the authorities.

Media reports show that while Hema Malini was taken off to a famous private hospital in Rajasthan, the victims were admitted to a local hospital before being shifted to Jaipur's SMS hospital.

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.

Ramesh Chand Thakur, who was driving Hema's car when it met with the accident in Dausa, 60 km from here, has been arrested at Kotwali Thana, SHO Dilip Singh said.

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) in the wee hours.

Locals staged a protest after the accident and tried to block the highway, but they were dispersed by police.

The incident has been most unfortunate for the 5-member family and are reportedly struggling to overcome the loss of their daughter Sonam.
