IndiaCyrus Mistry dies due to overspeeding car, error of judgement, no seat belt

Police official says over-speeding and an “error of judgement” by Dr Anahita Pandole, was driving the car, caused the accident.

Cyrus Mistry, Indian-born Irish businessman e billionaire and former chairman of India’s biggest conglomerate Tata Group and Jahangir Binshah Pandole, son Dinshaw Pandole die in a road accident.  A police official said that over-speeding and an “error of judgement” by Dr Anahita Pandole, who was driving the car, caused the accident on the bridge on the Surya River at 2:30 pm on Sunday, while they were returning to Mumbai from Ahmedabad.

Cyrus Mistry and the Pandoles were coming back from Udvada, where the Parsis have their main “Fire Temple,” where they had gone to pray for Dinshaw Pandole, Darius and Jahangir’s father who had passed away on Monday, 29 August 2022.

There were four people in the vehicle, of which two, including Mistry, died on the spot. The other deceased person has been identified as Jahangir Binshah Pandole.  Cyrus Mistry was sitting in the rear seat, and the two people that survived were sitting in front with seat belts on.

Those injured — identified as Anahita Pandole, a well-known gynaecologist at Breach Candy Hospital, (who was driving the car) and Darius Pandole, the managing director and CEO of JM Financial Private Equity and both have been shifted to a hospital.

Dr Anahita Pandole  and her husband, Darius Pandole were brought by road to the HN Reliance Foundation Hospital in Mumbai on the morning of 5 September, Monday.

The couple, who survived the tragic accident that claimed the lives of former Tata Group Chairman Cyrus Mistry and his co-passenger Jahangir Pandole in Palghar, near Mumbai on Sunday, 4 September, is now stable and a team of 20 multi-disciplinary doctors is evaluating them, Dr Tarang Gianchandani, CEO, HN Reliance Foundation Hospital, said.

Darius Pandole, who was sitting on the passenger side in the car, is the son of Dinshaw Pandole of the Duke’s company that owned popular soft drink brands like Mangola, Lemonade, and Duke Soda. The company was acquired by PepsiCo India in 1994.

Darius is also the Managing Director and CEO of the Mumbai-based JM Financial Private Equity. He was earlier an independent director in the Tata Group firms and had resisted the removal of Cyrus Mistry as the Tata Sons Chairman. He had stepped down from the post when Mistry was removed, which showed how close he was to Mistry.

Meanwhile, Dr Pandole, who has 32 years of experience, including 25 years as a specialist, had collaborated with the Bombay Parsi Punchayet and started The Bombay Parsi Punchayet Fertility Project in January 2004, in an effort to address the population decline in the Parsi community.

The project provided fertility treatment to Parsi couples at subsidised rates and allowed them to have access to state-of-the-art medical facilities.

The medical component of the ‘Jiyo Parsi’ scheme evolved out of this initial fertility project with significant inputs and suggestions from Dr Pandole.

Dr Pandole is a consultant obstetrician with a special interest in infertility management, high-risk obstetrics, and endoscopy surgery, as per the ‘Jiyo Parsi’ website.
She completed her MBBS from the Topiwala National Medical College and BYL Nair Charitable Hospital in 1990 and completed her MD in Obstetrics and Gynaecology from the same college in 1994.

Opinions are expressed that “Airbags are of no use if seat belts are not strapped.”

While all the cars have rear seat belts as per government regulation, very few people use them with a fake feeling that the rear is very safe.

During the time of a car crash, one reports says, a person behind is sometimes thrown at a force of 40G (40 times the gravity, which signifies that the person weighing 80 kgs will be like 3200 kgs).

If the front passenger is wearing a seat belt and the rear passenger is not, during the time of a crash, the front passenger is likely to be severely injured or killed due to the rear passenger falling with a weight of an elephant.

Thus it is extremely imperative to use seatbelts even in the rear seats.

Cyrus Mistry’s Death Scores 2nd Loss for 157-Year-Old Shapoorji Pallonji & Co
Cyrus’ father Pallonji Mistry, who died in June 2022, at the age of 93, is dubbed as ‘the Phantom of Bombay House’. It is bizarre that Jahangir Pandole lost his life after going to the Fire Temple to offer prayers for his deceased father who only died a week earlier. Death has an uncanny call.

They were in a 70 lakh worth Mercedes GLC car yet it could not save all their lives.
