The tragic death of former Tata Sons Chairman Cyrus Mistry has stunned many Indians with politicians and industrialists reacting in shock. Mistry was killed in a road accident as he travelled from Ahmedabad to Mumbai in his Mercedes car. His driver and one other person travelling with Mistry were injured and have been shifted to a hospital in Gujarat. However, Twitter had exploded with conspiracy theories as many netizens suspected foul play behind Mistry’s death.
Mistry was ousted unceremoniously as the chairman of Tata Sons in October 2016. He had challenged the Tata Board’s decision in court but even the Supreme Court upheld his sacking.
Twitter user Sachiin Ramdas Suryavanshi wrote, “Seems conspiracy @ETNOWlive reported recent article on 12th August of Tata Group will and successor after Shri Ratan Tata. SC dismissed Cyrus Mistry review petitions on 19th May recently and he was going to challenge it again if I am not wrong. Seems conspiracy to me.”
