Cyrus Mistry death: Former Tata Sons chairman autopsy conducted

A day after former Tata Sons chairman Cyrus Mistry and another person were killed in a car crash incident, Mumbai's J J Hospital conducted their autopsy in the early hours of Monday, hospital officials said.

The last rites of Mistry will be performed on Tuesday at 10 am in Mumbai's Worli crematorium.

The two bodies were brought to the J J Hospital here from Kasa sub-district hospital in Palghar at 12.05 am, an official from the medical facility in Mumbai said.

The autopsy was conducted at 2.27 am, he said adding the bodies were kept in the hospital's morgue. The official did not disclose any other details.

Meanwhile, the Pundole couple who are in critical condition were shifted by road from Vapi to a private hospital in Mumbai on Monday morning for further treatment, a police official said.

Mumbai-based gynaecologist Dr Anahita Pundole (55) and her husband Darius Pandole (60) were critically injured in the car crash that killed 54-year-old Mistry and Darius's brother Jahangir Pandole.

According to the hospital medicos, Dr Anahita Pundole is suffering from pneumothorax and hip fracture, but her blood pressure is maintained and she is under observation. Her husband Darius Pundole has suffered bilateral jaw fractures with a displaced jaw causing airways obstruction. A surgeon has pulled out the jaw with wire fixation and cleared the airway clear and he is also stable.

The gynecologist was driving the ill-fated luxury car that hit a road divider in Palghar district, about 120 km from Mumbai, on Sunday afternoon. Anahita Pundole and Darius Pundole were shifted to a private hospital in Vapi in Gujarat after they survived the car crash.
