Cyrus Mistry Ex-Chairman of Tata Sons Dies In a Road Accident

According to authorities, Cyrus Mistry, who followed Ratan Tata as chairman of Tata Sons before being removed in India’s most publicised boardroom coup, died on Sunday in an car accident in Palghar, Maharashtra. He was 54.
In a Mercedes, Mr. Mistry was driving from Udwada in Gujarat 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.

“Mistry was travelling to Mumbai when the accident happened at around 3.15 p.m. 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 vehicle 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.”

The car attempted to pass another vehicle while idling quickly.

Devendra Fadnavis, the deputy chief minister of Maharashtra, stated that he had requested that a thorough investigation into the tragedy be carried out by the state police.

This is the most recent setback for the Mistry family, whose patriarch and Cyrus’s father, Pallonji Mistry, passed away in June at the age of 93. Their empire constructed opulent hotels, stadiums, palaces, and factories throughout Asia, but in recent years, it has gained notoriety due to a business dispute with the Tata Group.

The nation was led in grieving the passing of the business mogul by Prime Minister Narendra Modi, who described it as a “huge loss” to the economic and industrial worlds.

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.
