The postmortem report of former Tata Sons chief Cyrus Mistry has come out. This shows that he died soon after the accident. The PM report states that Cyrus and his friend Jehangir Pandole had suffered severe head and internal body parts, resulting in death. On 4 September, his car met with an accident in Palghar, Maharashtra.
Cyrus and Jehangir were sitting in the back seat of the car. The car was driven by his friend and Mumbai’s renowned gynaecologist Dr Anahita Pandole. Her husband, Darius Pandole, was sitting in the front seat. Both of them also suffered severe injuries, and both were admitted to the hospital.
‘Hefty bleeding in Cyrus Mistry’ head’
Cyrus Mistry’s postmortem was conducted at JJ Hospital in Mumbai. The initial postmortem report revealed that he had sustained severe injuries to his chest, head, neck, and thigh. Viscera and blood samples have been kept for further investigation.
According to the report of Mustafa Shaikh associated with India Today, there was a lot of blood loss due to the head injury. Doctors at JJ Hospital said that this type of injury occurs when the body has received a powerful jolt as if the car reaches zero at a speed of 100.
The postmortem report said that Jahangir Pandole also died due to a similar grievous injury. Jehangir Pandole was the director of KPMG Global Strategy Group. According to the hospital, the viscera samples will be sent to the Forensic Science Laboratory (FSL). A viscera test is done for any chemical, alcohol and poison in the body. Sources said that the sample has also been kept for a DNA test.
‘Effects would have been less if seat belts were installed.’
On the other hand, Indian Express has quoted a forensic expert in its report that Cyrus Mistry was not wearing a seat belt, due to which he may have fallen hard in the front. Expert said,
He may have hit the front seat or dashboard, causing many serious injuries, especially to the head. Had he been wearing a seat belt, the effect would have been less. People not wearing a rear seat belt sometimes get into accidents. Get out of the car.
This incident happened on 4 September near Charoti of Palghar. Initial investigation revealed that the speed of the vehicle was high. Suddenly his car (Mercedes GLC) hit the divider and became uncontrollable.
A forensic examination of where his accident occurred in Palghar will also be done. It has been revealed in many studies that if the back seat occupants wear safety belts, then 55-75 per cent of deaths can be prevented.
