Juvenile’s Bail Cancelled in Pune Porsche Accident Case


Pune: The Juvenile Justice Board on Wednesday cancelled the bail of the Pune teenager who rammed his Porsche into a motorcycle, killing two IT professionals in their 20s, said reports.


This decision overturns the previous bail granted just three days ago, which sparked widespread condemnation after the Board mandated the 17- year old to pen an essay on road safety.

Sources said, the board has sent the juvenile to a remand home till June 5. The board, however, did not  give a decision on whether he should be tried as an adult. 

Following the tragic accident  in the early hours of Sunday, where the teenager, son of a prominent Pune real estate figure, was released on bail within a remarkably short span of 15 hours. In addition to a personal bond and providing a surety, he was asked to write  a 300-word essay on road safety, visiting the regional transport office to familiarize himself with traffic regulations, and delivering a presentation.

Furthermore, he was required to undergo counseling for alcohol addiction and seek psychiatric consultation.

The accident happened in Pune’s Kalyani Nagar around 2.15 am, when the teenager, who had been drinking with his friends in two pubs  to celebrate his Class 12 results, knocked down the two 24-year-old IT professionals. Aneesh Awadhiya, who was riding the bike, hurtling into a parked vehicle, while Ashwini Koshta, the pillion rider, was propelled 20 feet into the air, resulting in the death of the duo.
