Talking to TOI, Sohail said, "We are not an insensitive family. And it's not a good feeling to be portrayed that way. The driver was alone in the car. It was the driver who caused the very unfortunate accident. He has taken the responsibility of it." He further claims that his family is extremely disturbed with the entire episode. "We are shaken by the whole episode. Who wouldn't be? Are we not human?" he said.
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.
