Later, in her statement, Sharmiela Mandre said, "I didn't have pass. So, I sought the help of Don Thomas and Lokesh Vasant who had the passes to come out during the lockdown. I was in the backseat when the incident occurred, while Thomas was on the driver's seat. He lost control of the car which lead to the accident,"

"I was not out to party, but to buy medicine as I was suffering from stomach ache. We were four in the car – Don Thomas, Lokesh Vasant, Shifa Johar and I," she added. The 33-year old has suffered a hairline fracture.
