Cyrus Mistry, Tata Sons Ex Chairman, Dies In Accident Near Mumbai

According to authorities, Cyrus Mistry, who succeeded Ratan Tata as chairman of Tata Sons before being removed in India’s most publicised boardroom coup, died on Sunday in an automobile accident in Palghar, Maharashtra. He was 54.
According to the statement, Mr. Mistry was driving a Mercedes from Ahmedabad to Mumbai.

The wrecked remains of the silver Mercedes were visible in photos taken at the scene of the crash. A road barrier caused the car to crash in the Charoti neighbourhood of Palghar, 135 kilometres from Mumbai.

“Around 3.15 pm, Mistry was travelling from Ahmedabad to Mumbai when the tragedy happened. The Surya river bridge was the site of the disaster. It appears to be a mishap, “Balasaheb Patil, the district police chief for Palghar, stated.

Jehangir Pandole, Anahita Pandole, and Darius Pandole were in the automobile with Mr. Mistry. The additional victim of the tragedy was Jehangir Pandole, Darius Pandole’s brother.

Independent director for Tata Group companies Darius Pandole had opposed Mr. Mistry’s ouster as chairman of the business. Along with Mr. Mistry, he also quit the Tata group. Anahita’s husband is Darius. The driver of the vehicle was Mumbai’s well-known gynaecologist, Anahita Pandole.

After the accident, Anahita Pandole and Darius Pandole were sent to a private hospital in Vapi, Gujarat. The police official stated on Sunday night that “they are expected to be transferred to a Mumbai hospital on Monday morning.”

According to a police officer who spoke to news agency PTI, the car was rushing and attempted to pass another vehicle from the incorrect side (the left). Devendra Fadnavis, the deputy chief minister of Maharashtra, announced that he had requested that a thorough investigation into the tragedy be carried out by the state police. As the state’s home minister and spokesperson, Mr. Fadnavis tweeted, “Spoke to DGP and instructed for detailed investigations.”

In October 2016, Mr. Mistry—the sixth chairman of Tata Sons—was relieved of his duties. After Ratan Tata announced his retirement in December 2012, he took over as chairman. The two boys of Mr. Mistry’s marriage to Rohiqa are his only survivors.
