Bhopal (Madhya Pradesh): In new developments, parents of the victims from the Pune car accident demanded a Supreme Court monitored probe and trial in the case on Friday. Families also demanded that the trial should be taken up in their home state Madhya Pradesh and not Maharashtra-- where the crime took place.

Two software engineers, who hailed from Madhya Pradesh, died on May 19 in Pune after a speeding Porsche, driven by a 17 year old hit their motorcycle.

The victims were identified as Anish Awadhiya and Ashwini Koshta, both 24-year-old IT professionals hailing from Madhya Pradesh. Ashwini hailed from Jabalpur, while Anish belonged to Birsinghpur Pali in Umaria district.

Talking to PTI, Ashwini's father, Suresh Kumar Koshta, said, "The Supreme Court should monitor the investigation and trial in the case to ensure that we get justice." The accused should be tried as an adult and not as a minor, considering the serious nature of the crime, he said.

He went on and alleged that the minor was in an inebriated state when he drove his car into their motorcycle.

"I am going to fight for justice till my last breath, The trial in the case should be held in Madhya Pradesh and not in Pune to ensure justice for the families" said Anish's father, Om Prakash Awadhiya.
