The girl's relatives had promised financial help for his treatment if he was not to move legally against her. Hence, Gandhimanian didn't file a police complaint. However, entire accident was captured by a CCTV camera and the footage went viral via social media.
Gandhimanian confessed to the accident and injuries to the media on Tuesday afternoon as the amount given by the girl's family wasn't enough to meet the expenses of his treatment. He had a hairline fracture on his leg and broken three ribs.
