"Jashodaben is okay. She's (in) comfort. She is getting primary health check-up done," said Suresh Khatik, the sub divisional magistrate of Chittorgarh. Senior police officers and administration officials rushed to Chittorgarh hospital.
The accident took place around 55 km from Chittorgarh on the Kota-Chittor highway. There were 7 people in the car -- most of them were believed to be her relatives. One of them, Basant Bhai, died on the spot. A woman relative, Vimla Modi, a gunman travelling with Jashodaben, and a five-year-old child were also injured.
After the accident, senior Congress leader Ashok Gehlot tweeted, "Sad to learn about the road accident near #Chittorgarh, #Rajasthan in which #Jashodaben and others got injured and one person died... May God give strength to bereaved family... Hope and pray those injured recover soon."
