I own a 2007 Mahindra Bolero 2.5 diesel Turbo 2x4. I ran out off diesel on the road and tried to bleed it at the manual pump. Can I now loosen the injectors and crank it up to get rid of the air that is present in the diesel line?

You can loosen the injectors and crank it up to ensure that no air is left in the diesel engine, apart from that you need to ensure that air is not left in the fuel filters as well. If you are familiar with the functioning of a diesel engine you need to ensure that no air is left at all in the diesel line injectors as well and also one needs to know that all the air will come out in the form of air bubbles when one bleeds the engine.
In my opinion you should call an expert mechanic and let him do the job for you as it will ensure proper safety of your diesel engine as well. This problem is not unheard of and that is why most diesel vehicles have a manual primer pump included in it.
