The father of a two-year-old girl killed in a road accident involving Hema Malini’s car lashed out at the veteran actor after she blamed him for the incident, saying he had not broken any traffic rules at the time of the collision.

Hanuman Khandelwal, who lost his daughter Sonam in the accident near Dausa last Thursday, said if the actor had any humanity, she would have taken his daughter with her to a hospital in Jaipur. “Who knows, my daughter would have been with us,” he said.

Malini, who is also a BJP lawmaker, tweeted that the accident could have been averted if the “girl’s father had followed the traffic rules”.

Speaking at the SMS Hospital, where he is being treated with his wife Shikha, 26, their four-year-old son Somil and sister-in-law Seema, Khandelwal said: “I never thought big people think so petty.”He said he was saddened by Malini’s remarks as he had not broken any traffic rules. He also alleged that Malini’s Mercedes was travelling at more than 100kmph when it hit his Maruti Alto. “I was driving at a slow speed. I switched on the indicator before taking a turn. Which rule did I break?” he said.
