Pune Porsche Crash: Police Submits Final Report to Juvenile Justice Board

Pune Porsche Crash

Police have submitted the final report to the Juvenile Justice Board (JJB), outlining all evidence against a 17-year-old boy purportedly linked to a car crash in Pune’s Kalyani Nagar last month, as disclosed by an officer.

The teenage driver, implicated in the Porsche car accident during the early hours of May 19 that resulted in the deaths of two software professionals, is presently held at an observation home in the city.

The police had filed a plea to treat the juvenile as an adult for trial in the case. To bolster their argument, the police have now presented pertinent evidence to the JJB, according to the officer.

“We have submitted all evidence to the JJB proving that he was driving the Porsche car, starting from his house on the evening of May 19 until the accident occurred,” he stated.

Details of Evidence

“The report includes corroborative statements from eyewitnesses who saw him driving the car, CCTV footage recovered during the investigation, and evidence of him consuming alcohol at Cosie Restaurant and Blak Club. In summary, we have provided a comprehensive final report demonstrating that the juvenile, in an inebriated condition, was driving the car and caused the death of two riders,” he stated.

The crime branch officer affirmed that the report supports their request to treat the juvenile as an adult for trial. Simultaneously, the investigation has disclosed that the juvenile’s blood samples, which were exchanged with those of his mother, were disposed of as biomedical waste at Sassoon General Hospital, he mentioned.

Arrests Made

The minor boy’s parents, along with two doctors-Dr. Ajay Taware and Dr. Shrihari Halnor-and a hospital employee, Atul Ghatkamble, are presently incarcerated for their purported involvement in the blood sample swapping case. Additionally, police have apprehended two individuals who acted as intermediaries between the doctors and the juvenile’s father to facilitate financial transactions for the blood sample swap.
