Gustad's bail application to be opposed

The family of British Pakistani Nadia Khan, who was killed while assisting film director Kaizad Gustad, has decided to oppose the bail applications of the arrested filmmaker and a crew member.

Lawyer Usha Purohit, appointed by Khan's family, Saturday said the bail application moved by Gustad and line producer Ashish Udeshi would be opposed when it came up for hearing in the metropolitan court Monday.

Khan, 27, was the second assistant director for Gustad's movie "Mumbai Central".

She was knocked down by a train at Mahalaxmi station May 25, but the film crew, including Gustad, initially insisted that she was hit by a truck. Gustad, Udeshi and a policewoman were subsequently arrested.

Purohit said: "We are still awaiting a copy of the permission granted to Gustad by the railway authorities to shoot at Mahalaxmi station.

"We have also requested for information if there was an insurance cover taken for the crew as stipulated under railway rules while endangering a person's life."

A bail application was moved Friday by Gustad's lawyer Sayaji Nangre, contending that "Gustad and Udeshi have been falsely implicated and no incriminating material has been collected against them".

The application states: "Both Gustad and Udeshi cannot be charged for culpable homicide because it still has to be proved that Nadia's death resulted because of recklessness and negligence."

Railway police said Mahalaxmi station superintendent C.G. Ashokan had also applied for anticipatory bail.

Ashokan, who knew apparently about the incident, neither reported the accident to the authorities nor made a "diary entry" about it. He has been "missing" from office and home for the last seven days.
