Sources from the Mumbai Police informed the Daily Bhaskar that Salman has offered to claim the body and want to give the deceased a respectable funeral. But, on the other hand, the police officials informed the NDTV that since the homeless victim lived on the roadside, they would wait for the next three days for any of her relatives to come forward and claim the body. Else, two of the eyewitnesses of the accident, named Rakesh Shukla and Yash Shah would perform the final rites, if nobody turns up in the upcoming three days.
The accident took place on Sunday night, near St Andrews Church in Bandra. Sohail's driver Dhananjaya Pimpale was driving the car towards Sohail Khan's home in Galaxy apartments, when he hit Chandan Bala. Dhananjaya Pimpale was arrested by the police and subjected to an alcohol test which turned out to be negative. The police has booked Pimpale on charges of rash driving and culpable homicide not amounting to murder. But, he was later released on bail for a surety of Rs 10,000.
