On CCTV, Cyrus Mistry’s Luxury Car Minutes Before Fatal Crash

CCTV footage shows the car speeding minutes before the accident

Palghar (Maharashtra):

A day after Cyrus Mistry’s death in a car crash near Mumbai, a video shows the Mercedes SUV on the road just before the accident on Sunday afternoon.

Cyrus Mistry, a former chairman of Tata Sons, traveled in a Mercedes GLC Sports Utility Vehicle with Darius Pandole, a former independent director of the Tata Group, his wife Anahita Pandole and brother Jehangir Pandole.

Camera images show how the car drives at high speed on a bridge over the river Surya to a checkpoint, past the Dapchari checkpoint 20 minutes before the accident. The car would then hit a road fence on the bridge at Charoti Naka, about 135 km from Mumbai.

An eyewitness, who works for a mechanic, saw the accident. He rushed to the spot after hearing a loud bang.

Anahita Pandole, a gynecologist from Mumbai, drove the car. Police say she may have lost control of the vehicle when she overtook another vehicle at high speed from the wrong side and hit a road barrier.

Apart from that, the three-lane road suddenly changes to two lanes on the bridge over the Mumbai-Ahmedabad highway, which is also believed to be one of the causes of the accident.

Cyrus Mistry and Jehangir Pandole, who were sitting in the back seat, were killed. According to police sources, they were not wearing seat belts.

Anahita Pandole, 55, and Darius Pandole, 60, who were both in the front seat, were seriously injured.

Police are analyzing the footage captured by all CCTV cameras in the area and the car is being examined for mechanical issues. They are also trying to retrieve data from a chip mounted in the vehicle – similar to a black box.
