Mumbai: The Bombay High Court has charged gynecologist Dr. Anahita Pandole with culpable homicide not amounting to murder in the death of industrialist and former Tata Sons chairman Cyrus Mistry. The PIL seeking to impose it was dismissed on Tuesday.
Please tell that Dr. Pandole was driving the car in which the mechanic died after falling into the river.
A division bench of Acting Chief Justice SV Gangapurwala and Justice Sandeep Maren said the petition has been filed with the intention to grab headlines and the petitioner has nothing to do with the matter even remotely. The bench also imposed a fine on the petitioner who claimed to be an activist.
Notably, Mistry (54) and his friend Jehangir Pandole were killed on September 4 last year when their luxury car rammed into a divider on a bridge over the Surya river in the Palghar district, adjacent to the Mumbai-Ahmedabad highway. Anahita Pandole (55), who was driving the car, and her husband Darius Pandole, who was traveling in the vehicle, were seriously injured in the accident.
