Pune Porsche horror: Mother of 17-year-old teen arrested

Pune police have arrested the mother of the 17-year-old boy who is accused of running over two people while driving his high-speed Porsche recently.

The mother swapped her blood sample in order to prove that her son wasn't drunk when the accident occurred, police were quoted as saying by NDTV.

The two friends of the 17-year-old teen, whose speeding Porsche car ran over two people leading to their death in Pune, told the cops that the accused was drunk while driving, media reports said.

Eyewitnesses have claimed the car was travelling at 200 km/hr when it hit a two-wheeler carrying Aneesh Awadhiya and Ashwini Kostha, two 24-year-old engineers.

The incident occurred on May 19.

The teen was released on bail within 15 hours under what has been widely alleged as lenient conditions- he was required to write a 300-word essay, assist traffic police for 15 days, and seek treatment for his drinking habit.

Following public outrage, the Juvenile Justice Board revised its order and placed him in an observation home until June 5, pending a decision on the police's request to try the teen as an adult.

The investigation later discovered that the teen's blood report was manipulated by swapping samples.

Dr. Ajay Taware, head of Sassoon Hospital's forensic medicine department, chief medical officer Dr. Shrihari Halnor, and staff member Atul Ghatkamble have been arrested in connection with this, the report said.

The probe revealed that Dr. Halnor and Ghatkamble received Rs 3 lakh from Dr. Taware to alter the blood samples, according to a police officer.

The blood sample of the Pune teenager might have been switched with his mother's sample to forge the alcohol test results and exonerate him, media reported.

The investigation into the accident has revealed major irregularities in the 17-year-old's medical examination at the state-run Sassoon Hospital, reported NDTV.

In the wake of these findings, Maharashtra Medical Education has set up a three-member committee led by Dr. Pallavi Sapale, dean of Mumbai's Grants Medical College, to investigate the issue, the report said.
