Actress Yashika and her three friends met with an accident a day ago when they were returning from Mahabalipuram. The accident happened near Sulerikadu on ECR when the car hit the median and toppled.
Yashika’s friend Valli Chetty Bhavani (28) died on the spot. She is said to have returned from US a week ago. Yashika and other two male friends were seriously injured and were admitted to hospital in a critical condition by other motorists on the road.
Yashika is said to have acquired severe injuries in the hip and a fracture in the leg. But after surgery her condition is now said to be stable. The other two male friends are also out of danger.
Meanwhile Police have filed a case on the accident and are investigating. It is evident from a video that Yashika was behind the wheel just before the accident.
Yashika is booked under Sections 279 (rash driving), 337 (causing hurt by an act that endangers the life or personal safety of others), and 304A (causing death by negligence) of the IPC. Legal action will be taken against Yashika based on these sections after she recovers from her injuries.
