    how was it washed? if it washed at a service station on a lift then water can get into engine compartmenet from below, if you simply washed it yourself without opening bonnet then it shouldn't leak at all, to confirm drive in rain and then check if its wet there, if so change the sealing rubber strips on the side of the bonnet.
    If everything is coming your way, you're in the wrong lane!

    The engine bay is not a water tight area unlike the cabin and luggage area,manufactures have designed drain away areas in the engine compartment so water can't damage electric component or find its way in the cabin.This is not a issue ,don't worry...

    Yes I noticed that Plastic near rubber stripes and small part of rubber stripes has some gap. I filled silicon on those gap. I will wash my car tomorrow and check the amount of water in engine bay reduced or not by home CarWash.
    @judgevt and @ie_malik , Yes I checked by my self tomorrow and I also concluded that engine bay is not a water tight area and small water on sides in normal because company made a small hole in a plastic in both corner so they are infact allowing this but my issue id due to water leaking from rubber stripes in corner and entering engine bay.

    dont sweat it,

    the engine gets a good spraying with water as you drive down the road in rain, the diffrence is that the spray is fine mist assisted by air - the service station floods water in there causing all sorts of pain.
