Prime Minister Narendra Modi's brother, Prahlad Modi, was injured after his car met with an accident near Mysuru in Karnataka this afternoon.
Prahlad Modi, accompanied by his wife, son, daughter-in-law and grandson, was travelling to Bandipura in a Mercedes-Benz SUV when it hit a divider around 2 pm. His convoy was also travelling with him when the accident took place.
Visuals from the spot showed severe damage to the front of the car.
Police said the car hit the median but "wasn't speeding".
Mysuru SP Seema Latkar told NDTV: "Five members were travelling in a Mercedes-Benz. The driver wasn't speeding, however, he lost control and hit the median. The area where the accident took place is not a busy junction and the maximum travel speed is 40-50km per hour."
Prahlad Modi's grandson suffered a fracture in his leg while others were admitted to Mysru's JSS Hospital with minor injuries.
"The child has suffered a fracture. No one has suffered life-threatening injuries. Everyone's out of danger," said Dr Madhu, JSS medical superintendent.
Karnataka Sports Minister Narayan Gowda visited Prahlad Modi and his family at the hospital and enquired on their health.
