Cyrus Mistry and his friend Jahangir Pandole were killed on September 4 when their Mercedes-Benz SUV hit a road divider on a bridge in Palghar district neighbouring Mumbai. Two other car occupants, Anahita Pandole, who was driving the car and her husband Darius Pandole, suffered injuries and were admitted to a private hospital in Mumbai.

The report claims that the brakes of the Mercedes-Benz SUV carrying Mistry and three others were applied five seconds before it crashed, as revealed the luxury carmaker in its interim report submitted to the Palghar police last week. The report also claims that a prima facie investigation suggested speeding and error of judgement by the driver caused the car crash.
