Send to Friend
The Bombay High Court Wednesday granted bail to film director Kaizad Gustad, charged with manslaughter over the death of his British deputy Nadia Khan May 25 in a train accident while shooting a film here.

Justice Dilip Bhosale also granted bail to two members of Gustad's crew, Ashish Udeshi and Hardley D'Mello, against a cash payment of Rs.35,000 with a surety each for an identical amount.

The court said: "The three will deposit their passports with the police, cooperate with the investigations and not leave the country without court's permission."

The accused pleaded that they had been wrongly booked for culpable homicide not amounting to murder.

Their bail applications said the railway police had already recorded their statements and that they were being kept in custody merely because police had not recorded statements of witnesses.

The prosecution has charged them with falsifying evidence.

Gustad informed authorities that Khan, the Pakistan-born assistant director, had died in a road accident, while eyewitnesses confirmed she was hit by a train at Mahalaxmi railway station while shooting the movie "Mumbai Central".

The sessions court and the railway court had earlier rejected their bail applications and remanded them in judicial custody till July 1.
