Bail refused to Gustad over British national's death
A court here Tuesday extended the police custody of film director Kaizad Gustad, who was arrested after a British national on his crew died in a train accident, till June 17.
Gustad is facing charges of manslaughter and falsifying evidence after 27-year-old Nadia Khan was run over on May 27 by a train at Mahalaxmi railway station during the shooting of the movie "Mumbai Central".
Police said Gustad tried to falsify evidence by reporting to the hospital where Pakistan-born Khan was taken, that she had been injured in a road accident.
The court extended the remand of line producer Ashish Udesh also till June 17. The remand of another crewmember, Hardley D'Mello, had already been extended till June 17.
Turning down the bail application, magistrate P.T. Rahule observed, "The investigating agencies have not completed their investigations. Since more time was requested the bail application was not granted."
The railway police have claimed that Gustad's unit had "already begun shooting" when Khan was hit by the train.
Police sources said seven members of Kaizad's unit confirmed that Khan had died in a railway accident.
They have also recorded statements of three eyewitnesses who have said that shooting had already begun when the accident took place.
"The film's negative will help us confirm whether the shooting was on or not," said a police officer.
