Pune Porsche Crash: Teen Driver Gets Essay Assignment, While Father Faces Detention After Fatal Accident

Pune Porsche Crash: Teen Driver Let Off with Essay, Father Detained

A shocking incident in Pune has left many questioning the justice system. A 17-year-old boy, driving a Porsche, hit a motorcycle, killing two people, Ashwini Koshta and Aneesh Awadhiya, early on Sunday morning. Despite the severity of the incident, the Juvenile Justice Board granted him bail on the condition that he writes an essay about the accident and works with the Yerwada traffic police for 15 days.

The Incident

In the early hours of Sunday, 19 May, Ashwini Koshta and Aneesh Awadhiya, both 24, were hit by a Porsche allegedly driven by a 17-year-old in Pune’s Kalyani Nagar area. Ashwini died on the spot, while Aneesh succumbed to his injuries at the hospital. The minor, celebrating his Class XII results at a local pub, was seen consuming alcohol before the crash.

Legal Actions and Bail Conditions

– Teen’s Bail Conditions:
– Work with the Yerwada traffic police for 15 days.
– Write a 300-word essay on the impact of road accidents and their solutions.
– Undergo alcohol de-addiction treatment and psychiatric counseling, with a report to be submitted to the court.

Despite police efforts to have him tried as an adult, the court granted bail, stating the crime did not seem serious enough. This decision has sparked outrage, with many criticizing the leniency shown.

Family Reactions

The families of the victims are devastated and demand justice. Ashwini Koshta’s family wants the teen’s bail canceled and calls for his detention. Aneesh Awadhiya’s family echoes this sentiment, insisting that the minor should face stricter punishment.

Father’s Detention

On 21 May, the Pune Police detained the teen’s father, a prominent realtor, for allowing his son to drive and consume alcohol. He faces charges under sections 75 and 77 of the Juvenile Justice Act, which deal with neglect and providing intoxicants to a minor.

Additional Arrests

The police also arrested the owner and manager of the pub for serving alcohol to the minor.

Legal Context

The minor is charged under Section 304A of the IPC for causing death by negligence and Section 279 for rash driving. The father’s arrest follows the Motor Vehicles (Amendment) Act, 2019, which holds parents responsible for offenses committed by juveniles.

Conclusion

The incident has highlighted the need for stricter enforcement of laws regarding juvenile offenses and the responsibilities of parents. The case continues to develop as the police seek to ensure justice for the victims and accountability for those involved.
