Earlier today, a case was filed against Koi... Mil Gaya actor Rajat Bedi for allegedly hitting a person with his car. An ANI report quoted DN Nagar senior police officer, Milind Kurde who informed that Bedi was himself driving the car and hit a man named Rajesh Dhoot when he was crossing the road last evening.
The police officer also mentioned that the 51-year-old actor got the victim admitted to the nearby Cooper Hospital in Mumbai.
Now, a recent Pinkvilla report has quoted Rajat Bedi’s Business Manager Sridevi Shetty, who claimed that the victim, Rajesh Dhoot was drunk and the actor wasn’t driving rashly.
Clarifying about the entire episode that conspired on the evening of September 6, 2021, Shetty said, “The guy was drunk, and suddenly came from somewhere. Rajat wasn’t driving rashly. He immediately took him to Cooper Hospital and got his treatment done. Yesterday night they were not getting blood, so Rajat arranged for that too, and was in the hospital till 12:30-1. Rajat’s friend is in the hospital now who is taking care of the medication and the treatment. He had himself informed the police too.”
Meanwhile, a Mid-Day report quoted a doctor treating the victim Rajesh Ramsingh Dhoot, and informed that his condition is critical. Dhoot is also reported to have sustained head injuries. He is in ICU and on oxygen support. The doctor also informed that the victim is in urgent need of blood.
The report also quoted Dhoot’s wife Babita Doot who confirmed of her husband being drunk when the accident took place.
She said, “At the hospital, Bedi told us that my husband suddenly came in front of the car. He assured to help us and said that both he and his driver Suresh were there at the hospital. But after some time, he said he was leaving briefly, but never came back.”
Babita has reportedly pleaded for the actor’s arrest. Police have registered a case against Rajat Bedi under sections 279 and 338 of IPC and called the accused on Tuesday for investigation. However, no arrest has been made so far.
Rajat Bedi is known for his role as Raj Saxena in Hrithik Roshan’s movie ‘Koi… Mil Gaya’. He has worked on over 40 films, including ‘Rakht’, ‘Khamoshh’ and Rocky – The Rebel.
