JAIPUR: A 2 year child has died in an accident between politician Hema Malini’s Mercedes and a Maruti Alto in Rajasthan two days back. The BJP leader’s car was speeding, said a police officer. All the media has been taking coverage and details of Hema Malini inuries,treatment and her travel back to mumbai in Jet. But, hardly anyone has been covering about the 2 year old innocent dead child and their family situation.
BJP MP and actress Hema Malini has been widely criticized for not looking after the victims in the car which had been in an accident with her, resulting in the death of a 2 year old girl. The parents of the 2 year old child told the media that their daughter’s life could have been saved if she had been taken to the hospital with Hema Malini. Hema Malini was taken to the renowned Fortis hospital whereas the child was taken to a local hospital.
The cousin of the family told TOI:
The family members alleged that they were not treated like the way, the other victims in the other car. “Hema Malini was straightaway rushed to hospital in Jaipur but we were sent to Dausa’s district hospital,” Hanuman’s cousin Rajiv Gupta said.
The father who was driving the Alto SUV told TOI:
“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), Khandelwal said.
A doctor, who was passing by, had driven the actor-turned-politician to hospital in Jaipur.
