Jaipur: The Khandelwal community has demanded financial assistance for the family of Hanuman Khandelwal whose four-year-old daughter was killed after the car of BJP MP Hema Malini collided with theirs in Dausa district on July 2.
The community leaders have asked for assistance from both Hema Malini and the state government.
They have written separate letters to Malini and Chief Minister Vasundhara Raje seeking assistance for Hanuman Khandelwal's family.
"The accident in which Hanuman lost his daughter has hit his family badly. The family has suffered physically, mentally and financially. Keeping this in mind, the actress should come forward to assist the family," Manohar Lal Gupta, Khandelwal community leader, said.
A delegation of the community also met the District Collector of Dausa yesterday and handed over him a memorandum demanding as much as possible financial help from the Chief Minister's relief fund for the family.
However, Hanuman Khandelwal, when contacted, said that he was not aware of any such demand made by his community people.
"I have not demanded anything in my personal capacity and it is the community which has raised the demands on their own level. I came to know about it today only," Khandelwal said.
He said that all the four persons including him who were admitted to SMS hospital in Jaipur after the accident on July 2 have been discharged.
Hanuman's Maruti Alto car, in which he along his family was travelling, collided with Hema's Mercedes in Dausa which left his four-year-old daughter Sonam dead.
Malini also received injuries in the mishap and had undergone surgery for her wounds.
