Jaipur: Veteran film actor and BJP's MP from Mathura Hema Malini on Friday said she was "deeply pained" at a child's death in a road accident involving her car on the Jaipur-Agra national highway.
In a statement, she expressed "deep sorrow over the accident" and that she is "deeply pained by the death of an innocent child".
"I am aware that what the family must be going through after the loss of their daughter," said Hema Malini who is still in a hospital here.
