Matinee idol Salman Khan was involved in yet another road accident on Tuesday, when his car hit a 12-year-old girl, injuring her.

Salman was going to a cultural programme in memory of the father of Civil Aviation Minister Praful Patel in Bhandara, Vidarbha. The girl, Pranjali Kesalkar, was walking home from school when his chauffeur-driven car hit her.

This time, Salman did not flee. He rushed the girl to her home, and then took her, along with her father, to a private hospital. According to the doctor who was on duty, Pranjali was treated for minor abrasions under the left eye and knee, and was discharged immediately after treatment.

The father and daughter did not take the matter to the police. Salman, who has no dearth of scandals to his name, rewarded them by taking them to the cultural evening where he, along with a galaxy of Bollywood stars, displayed his dancing talent.

The police claimed no incident took place as no complaint was lodged with them.
