A report published in The Times of India, said the girl, identified as Sakshi Singh has been undergoing treatment in the MGM Hospital at Kamothe.

The police said that even if the father files a complaint, the driver will be immediately granted bail as he cannot afford to hire a lawyer for court case proceedings because he is poor. The police have charged the driver with dangerous driving under section 184 of the Motor Vehicles Act, taking suo motu cognizance of the offence.

The police added that they have recorded the father’s statement, but as he has not filed a complaint against the driver, the latter cannot be arrested.
