New Delhi: A day after the fatal Dausa car crash left BJP MP Hema Malini seriously injured, the veteran has now been discharged as per reports.

Hema Malini's Mercedes collided with a Maruti Alto near Dausa area, killing a four-year-old girl, and injuring four others—the accused driver of the vehicle was arrested and later released on bail, reportedly.

According to ANI, Hema's daughter Esha Deol was quoted as saying: “My mother is now much better and we hope to take her home very soon.”

The 66-year-old actress-turned politician underwent a surgery for her wounds at Fortis hospital here and was doing fine, doctors attending to her said. She was also treated for a minor fracture on her nose.

"On the request of family members, she was discharged around 9:30 AM", a spokesperson of Fortis Hospital told PTI. The 66-year-old actress had undergone a surgery for her wounds at the hospital yesterday. She was also treated for a minor fracture on her nose. A four-year-old girl was killed while five others were injured including the actress when Hema's car collided with another car on Thursday night in Dausa, 60 km from here.

Hanuman Mahajan, who lost his four-year-old daughter Sonam and was among the four injured, filed a complaint with the Kotwali police station in Dausa, against the driver of Hema's car.

Hema was proceeding from Mathura via Bharatpur to Jaipur when the mishap occurred on Agra-Jaipur National Highway-11 near Dausa in Rajasthan around 9 PM yesterday. The other car, a Alto, was going from Jaipur to Lalsot.
