NEW DELHI — After 28 days in custody, Indian helmer Kaizad Gustad and two assistants, who are facing charges relating to the on-set death of a British crew member, were granted bail by Mumbai High Court on Wednesday. Nadia Khan, 27, a film and media graduate from North London U., was hit by a train May 25 at a Mumbai railway station while filming “Bombay Central,” a movie about urban commuters.
Gustad and assistants Ashish Udeshi and Hadley D’Mello were arrested June 2 and have been held in custody while police investigate charges of negligence and culpable homicide.
The court ordered Gustad to appear before the local railway police three times a week and to surrender his passport to the court.
Witnesses said Pakistan-born Khan, 27, who was assisting the director, had walked onto the tracks with a camera and was talking on her mobile phone when she was hit by a train.
