"We will definitely help that family, not as a political figure but as human beings," Esha further added.
The distraught family of the deceased girl complained that Soman's life could have been saved had she been rushed to a hospital with actress Hema Malini. They even complained that none of the family members from the actress's family paid them a visit out of humanity.
For about "20-25 minutes our family of five" lay bleeding on the road in the crashed car, as a doctor took Hema Malini and others in his car to Jaipur's Fortis hospital, Sonam's father Hanuman Mahajan told reporters at the hospital.
Relatives of the family said categorically that they were competent to afford the treatment and not looking for any compensation from the government. Media was focusing on the injuries of the actress, while one came to us, they said.
