Gustad's crewmen resign over British Pakistani's death
By Marcellus D'Souza, IANS
Accusing him of hiding the truth, two of filmmaker Kaizad Gustad's crewmen have resigned over the death of British Pakistani Nadia Khan.
Khan, 27, was knocked down by a train at Mahalaxmi station here May 25 while assisting Gustad on the film "Mumbai Central". For almost a week, the film's crew maintained she was hit by a truck and not by a train.
But Tuesday, a day after the cause of death was finally confirmed by Gustad himself, the film's sound director Vinod Subramanian and director of photography Shankar Raman have resigned from the crew.
Raman said: "The manner in which Kaizad handled the incident, lied about it, especially to the family of the deceased girl, is very sad. My stand is that the truth should not be hidden".
Subramanian said: "We were very unhappy with the manner in which the incident was handled. I don't wish to have anything to do with the production."
Meanwhile, Khan's family will be appointing an Indian lawyer Tuesday "to fight out the compensation in the case".
