Actress and politician Hema Malini met with an accident last night in which a child was killed and two others injured.
The police has arrested her driver Mahesh Thakur and booked him under section 304 (culpable homicide not amounting to murder), section 337 (causing hurt by act endangering life or personal safety of others) and section 338 (causing grievous hurt by act endangering life or personal safety of others).
Hema was returning to Jaipur after a visit to the Mehendipur Balaji temple in Karauli district when her Mercedes rammed into an Alto at the Lalsot bypass on the highway.
There were five people -- one man, two women and two children -- in the Alto car when the accident occurred. While one child died, the others received serious injuries.
Hema Malini, who was sitting in the front seat, sustained injuries on her forehead, cheek, and legs. She was rushed to the Fortis Hospital in Jaipur where doctors conducted a CT scan and then administered stitches on her wounds.
The hospital will hold a press conference on her condition today at 11:45 am.
