Actor Sharmeila Mandre, who is best known for her roles in films like Aake and Mass Leader was involved in a car accident where she sustained face and head injuries. She was travelling with her friend Lokesh Vasanth.
According to media reports, Mandre has sustained injuries on her face and hand, while Lokesh has a fracture on his hand. According to a report in Deccan Herald, a police control room informed the traffic cops at around 3 AM on Saturday about the accident at Vasanth Nagar, Bengaluru.
A huge drama was staged at the accident spot when the police rushed there. Reportedly, a man, who claimed to be the driver, refused to reveal the names of the injured. When police asked him to produce his driving license, he refused to do so and requested the police to take them to hospital without registering a case. After police explained that the railway underbridge was damaged in the accident and that they cannot be allowed to go without a case, he confessed the names.
However, when police told him they will detain him for giving a false statement, he apparently fled the spot. Sharmeila Mandre and her friend were later taken to a private hospital by the cops, where they were treated for their injuries. Apart from violating the lockdown prohibitory order, it was reported in Deccan Herald that they were suspected to be under the influence of alcohol. However, a report from the hospital is still awaited.
