Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Sunday said the untimely death of businessman Cyrus Mistry was “shocking”. Mistry, former Tata Sons chairman, was on Sunday killed in a road accident after his car hit a divider in Maharashtra's Palghar district neighbouring Mumbai.

“He was a promising business leader who believed in India’s economic prowess. His passing away is a big loss to the world of commerce and industry. Condolences to his family and friends. May his soul rest in peace,” Modi tweeted soon after the news of Mistry's death.

Mistry, 54, was travelling from Ahmedabad to Mumbai in a Mercedes car, he said. “The accident took place around 3.15 pm, when Mistry was travelling to Mumbai from Ahmedabad. The accident took place on a bridge over the Surya river. It seems an accident,” said Palghar district superintendent of police, Balasaheb Patil.

A Kasa police station officer said the accident occurred at Charoti Naka on the Surya river bridge under the Kasa police station limits. The body of Mistry has been shifted to the Kasa Rural Hospital for postmortem.
