Mumbai: Salman Khan supporting his brother Shohail Khan ruled out paying any compensation to the 70-year-old woman who was killed by a Land Cruiser owned by Arbaaz Khan as she had been disowned by her family. Salman speaking to media said, “The accident happened by mistake. I spoke to my driver and he said when he was driving, he saw something like a black polythene bag on the road, but it was the lady who was completely in black. I would request everyone not to sleep on the road”. Salman was addressing media at their Galaxy apartment home in Bandra.
Sallu Miya went on to add, “We are not paying any compensation to the family members of the victim as we got to know that her family had disowned her”. The incident occurred around 11 p.m. Sunday near St. Andrew’s Church when the vehicle was headed towards the home of the Khans at Bandstand Salman’s brother Sohail said he was shocked. He said, “I was at home. I did not know what was happening. Only driver was there in the car. The car was coming home and they did not know who the family was”. The woman has been identified as Chandra Bala, police said. She was rushed to the Bhabha Hospital by a police constable and some autorickshaw drivers in the vicinity but died from her injuries.
Sohail asked the reporters not to hype the news but focus on helping the victim. He said, “Instead of focusing on who was in the car, people should focus on the fact that a women died. I got to know about this incident after an hour. This accident happened by mistake”.
