Former Tata Sons chairman Cyrus Mistry has passed away in a road mishap. The accident occurred when his car hit a divider in Maharashtra’s Palghar district neighbouring Mumbai on Sunday. He was travelling from Ahmedabad to Mumbai in a Mercedes car when the mishap occurred on a bridge over the Surya river around 3.15 pm, police said. Two other persons travelling with Mistry, including the car driver, were injured, and they have been rushed to a hospital in Gujarat.

From people who met him to those who admired from a distance, from politicians to journalists and industrialists, the news rattled all. “So sad to hear of the shocking news of the passing away of #CyrusMistry in an accident. He was a friend, a gentleman, a man of substance. He was instrumental in creating the global construction giant Shapoorji Pallonji and ably led the Tata group,” industrialist Harsh Goenka tweeted.
