Indian helmer held in fatality

Gustad arrested, held without bail

HOLLYWOOD — Mumbai police Wednesday arrested director Kaizan Gustad (“Boom”) and two others in connection with the death of assistant director Nadia Khan and a subsequent false report to police.

Khan, 27, was on the side of the tracks at Mahalaxmi station in Mumbai during the filming of “Mumbai Central” when she was hit by a train May 25.

Her death was reported to be due to an auto accident. That story unraveled as police asked Gustad, 36, to take them to the scene of the supposed traffic incident.

Gustad and associate Assish Udeshi are being held without bail while policewoman Darshana Vetti, who was accused of conspiracy and hiding evidence, was released on bail of 6,000 rupees ($132). All three are alleged to have been present at the time of Khan’s death.

Khan was rushed to nearby Nair Hospital, but died. Her body was taken to her family in London, where Gustad confessed Khan had died after being struck by the train.
