Pune: In the latest update to the ongoing killer Porsche accident case that claimed two innocent lives in the wee hours on May 19, Vishal Agarwal, father of the minor accused of the crash was detained from Sambhajinagar on Tuesday morning, according to an ANI report quoting Pune Commissioner of Police Amitesh Kumar.

Details On The Accident

The accident occurred around 2:30 am on Sunday and CCTV footage later emerged showing the minor, from the prominent Pune realtor family, driving the luxury car at over 200 kmph. He allegedly lost control of the vehicle, ramming into a motorcycle driven by Aneesh Awadhiya. The impact was so severe that Awadhiya and Ashwini Koshta, who was riding pillion, fell to the road and died. The car later crashed into roadside pavement railings.

Pune Police To Move Higher Court Against Accused

Pune Police Commissioner Amitesh Kumar announced on Monday that they will seek permission from a higher court to try as an adult the 17-year-old boy whose Porsche killed two people in Kalyani Nagar. Kumar claimed the youngster was drunk at the time of the accident. The boy has been charged under Section 304A (causing death by negligence) of the Indian Penal Code and sections of the Motor Vehicles Act.

"On Sunday, we moved an application before the Juvenile Justice Board seeking permission to try the juvenile as an adult and send him to an observation home, as the crime is heinous, but the plea was rejected. We are now approaching the sessions court with the same plea," said Kumar.

The blood report is yet to be received, but the preliminary probe showed the juvenile was drunk at the time of the accident, Kumar stated.

"The CCTV footage of the bar clearly shows the juvenile consuming alcohol. There is no doubt that the juvenile was driving the car after consuming alcohol. We will submit all these facts to the court," he added.
