The district had witnessed heavy rain and dust storms on Sunday, reported ANI.
This development comes at a time when accident caused by weather have been reported throughout the country. Nine people, including three farmers, died of lightning in Telangana and Andhra Pradesh on Sunday. That same day, a squall and dust storm with a wind speed of up to 109 kmph barrelled through Delhi and neighbouring areas, affecting flight, rail and metro operations, uprooting trees, and leading to incidents of wall collapse.
This is not the first accident involving the actress-turned-politician. In 2015, Malini was injured in a road accident in Dausa, Rajasthan involving her Mercedes and a Maruti Alto, in which a child was killed.
After the incident, the victim's family had said that while Malini got star treatment, they were left to suffer. The actress was rushed to Fortis Hospital in Jaipur whereas the child was taken to Sawai Man Singh Hospital, Jaipur.
