Pune teen who killed 2 techies after crashing his Porsche sent to remand home till June 5

Pune/IBNS: Three days after granting bail to the Pune teenager who rammed his Porsche into a motorcycle, killing two techies in their 20s, the Juvenile Justice Board Wednesday modified its order and sent him to a remand home till June 5.

The boy's lawyer said this has been done keeping in mind that there may be a threat to his life owing to public anger.

A man and a woman, riding a motorbike, were killed when the car, driven by 17-year-old Vedant Agarwal, hit their vehicle in Pune's Kalyani Nagar in the wee hours of Sunday.

The Juvenile Justice Board bail granted him within 15 hours of the accident after he was asked to write an essay on road accidents, prompting nationwide outrage.

Apart from a personal bond, a surety, and a 300-word essay on road safety, the boy, son of a prominent Pune builder, was asked to visit the regional transport office, study all rules and regulations, and give a presentation.

He was also asked to undergo de-addiction counselling for alcohol consumption and consult psychiatrists as Vendant was found to be driving under the influence of alcohol.

Viral videos from the night showed Vedant drinking with his friends at two pubs to celebrate CBSE Class 12 board results before the accident.

The accident occurred at 3:15 am when the two deceased techies, Anish Awadiya and Ashwini Costa, were returning home with friends on motorcycles after partying at a club.

The two riders were flung into the air under the impact of the crash, causing them to land on another car. They died instantly. After hitting them, the car crashed into the pavement and came to a halt, said the report.

Videos on social media showed a group of people thrashing the minor as he tried to come out of his mangled car.

At 17 years and 8 months old, the teenager is four months short of the legal age for driving and the legal drinking age in Maharashtra is 25 years.

Earlier in the day, the father of the Pune teenager had been remanded in police custody for two days by a sessions court in Pune.

The realtor had been charged under Sections 75 (wilful neglect of a child, or exposing a child to mental or physical illnesses) and 77 (supplying a child with intoxicating liquor or drugs) of the Juvenile Justice Act.
