Father of 17-yr-old who ran over two techies with Porsche in Pune arrested

While granting bail to the minor son of an influential realtor, the court asked the boy to write a 300-word essay on accidents, work with traffic police for 15 days and undergo counselling and treatment for drinking habit!!! There was a huge backlash over the absurd decisions of the court.

  • CCTV footage at the bar nearby shows the boy drinking before hitting the road.
  • Bar owner booked for serving liquor to minor
  • The Porsche Taycan had no registration
  • The accused was driving at 160 kmph
  • It is also alleged that soon after the mishap he reached the police station nearby and treated the cops to pizza.

PUNE, May 21: The father of the 17-year-old whose rash driving of a Porsche killed two techies on bike, hitting them from behind, in the wee hours of Sunday in Pune, was arrested on Tuesday morning. On the run, Vishal Agarwal was apprehended from Maharashtra's Sambajinagar.

IT engineers Aneesh Awadhiya and Ashwini Koshta, both of 24 years old, were killed on the spot, and the latter's body was dragged by the luxury car for over 50 feet. The accident took place in Kalyani Nagar area of Pune.

It has been confirmed that the minor boy was drunk. The CCTV footage at a bar nearby shows him drinking liquor before hitting the road.

It has also come to light that the Porsche Taycan involved in the accident had no registration and the accused was driving at 160 kmph.

The police have filed charges against his father, a prominent builder, under the Juvenile Justice Act. The owner of the bar where he drank has also been booked for serving alcohol to a minor. The pub has been sealed.

The investigation of cases has been transferred to the crime branch.

According to the police, the accused said in his statement that his father was aware he had gone for partying and was drinking and had taken the car.

Aneesh Awadhiya and Ashwini Koshta were returning from a get-together late on Saturday. Around 2:15 am Sunday, their bike was hit from behind by the speeding Porsche.

The driver of the car, aged 17 years 8 months, was granted bail by a Pune court. While granting the bail, the court asked him to write a 300-word essay on accidents, work with traffic police for 15 days and undergo counselling and treatment for drinking habit.

There was a massive backlash over the Juvenile Justice Board's decisions. The police said they had pleaded in the court for permission to try the accused as an adult but was refused. They were later to approach the sessions court.

"The court was moved on the same day for permission to try the juvenile accused as an adult under Section 15 of the Juvenile Justice Act since the ghastly incident was a ‘heinous crime’ as defined under Section 2 of the Juvenile Justice Act with the objective that he doesn’t get bail,” Pune Police Commissioner Amitesh Kumar stated. They had wanted the non-bailable section 304 IPC applied in the case.

Aneesh Awadhiya and Ashwini Koshta, both hailing from Jabalpur, Madhya Pradesh, had studied at an engineering college in Pune and were employed at a software company. .

“Two activists from the environmental movement ‘Riposte Alimentaire’ sprayed pumpkin soup on the armoured glass protecting the Mona Lisa, this Sunday, January 28, 2024, around 10 am (4aET),” a statement from the museum said.

It is not understood how undesirable elements are allowed to get so close to her and play havoc with the artwork. Several times over this has happened in the past, deranged minds masquerading as tourists and cultists venting their frustration.

A Spicejet passenger had a harrowing experience inside a tiny claustrophobic lavatory aboard a Mumbai-Bengaluru flight when he found to his bewilderment that the door was not opening.

Two days earlier, in a similar incident in the area, a domestic help was bitten by a pet dog in the lift when she was going for work.

Tailpiece: Sometimes appearing to outnumnber men and women on the streets, the stray dogs are turning more and more daring with sections of anti-social elements out there to feed and protect them in order to find a window for their unfulfilled love! There is an all-pervading feeling of lack of authority.

Ankit Tiwari had told the employee that “instructions had been received from the Prime Minister’s Office to conduct an enquiry” and reopen the “already disposed of” case and asked him to appear before the ED office at Madurai on October 30, DVAC said. The doctor was allegedly threatened with arrest and told to pay a bribe of Rs 3 cr to avoid the ED probe, which was later negotiated down to Rs 50 lakh.

Tailpiece: We are made to believe RBI, CBI, ED, Judiciary as sacrosanct and all others like railways, transport, revenue, education, PWD departments are composed of us the mortals, absolutely corrupt! As if in the sacrosanct places the angels descend from the heavens to work in the night and fly away before day-break! Let's be true to ourselves, we are all cut from the same cloth.

Apart from cash, Gill had also taken three planes as bribe and two of them were leased out to Redbird Aviation Academy. With the result, flying schools compromised on safety requirements and trainers met with accidents several times.

Five people were arrested from a banquet hall in Sector 51 Noida on Thursday where they were called to hold a rave party in a trap laid by the animal rights group, PFA. They named Yadav but he was not present.

Betting through Dubai-based Mahadev Book in India is conducted through a countrywide network. Probes reveal that the online gambling is worth several millions and top politicians, officials and celebs have been beneficiaries.

TAILPIECE: Polling dates for some States are round the corner. Top politicians have begun their acrimonious debate who looted more, even as Mahadev is washing their dirty laundry in the open ghat. Come what may, one needs to seize power to amass "thy wretched pelf!" One simple question is, why else one should spend lakhs or crores to get elected! A question every Indian should ask to oneself at least once a day!

His inaction amounts to defeating the rights of the people of the State to welfare measures sought to be implemented through the Bills, the Kerala Government's petition submitted, while the State of Tamil Nadu remarked that its "Governor is acting as a political rival."

Tailpiece: Coming up back to back, the petitions in their totality seem to question the provision of Raj Bhavan, and not motives of a Governor as a person.

Hundreds of cars piled up behind the wreckage of crashes occurring one after other in backing up - continuous crashes to the rhythm of metallic clanks and bangs back to back. According to reports, some ops required 'Jaws of Life' to pull apart the mangled cars to save lives inside.

The pilots struggled with Emerson to thwart a shut-off as he reached for the T-handles (see pix). Later he admitted to police he had taken psychedelic mushrooms and had a "nervous breakdown."

Doctors reasoned how the incidence of heart attacks is spiking over time and advise the simple way to play safely is to take a break and rehydrate yourself.

But how come ten people, including children, die of cardiac arrest at Garba in 24 hours, and that at different places of Gujarat? Garba had been going on for six days, and every year it is celebrated.

The killing of a teacher in France by an Islamic radical last Friday is linked to the Israel-Hamas war in West Asia, say authorities.

Shocking news from the UK: Leading grocers have started bribing policemen with free food and drinks to persuade them to take action against shoplifters.

Shoplifting has risen by about 27 per cent in 10 major cities across the UK this year. The cost of retail crime last year was $2.15 billion. Besides, “We are seeing organised gangs threatening staff with weapons and emptying stores," Helen Dickinson, chief executive of the British Retail Consortium, said. Data shows that the police failed to respond to 73 per cent of serious retail crimes that included assault and abuse of workers, apart from shoplifting.

Isar Mohammad allegedly picked up a banana offered to Ganesh idol on Chaturthi at a makeshift temple in Delhi and consumed it.

Harris said hip-hop is “the ultimate American art form” that “shapes every aspect of American popular culture.” “Hip-hop culture is American culture,” she said in a talk at her official residence at the US Naval Observatory in Washington, D.C.

The social media had mixed reaction. There was much appreciation that she dances better than any VP in American history. But some called her "moves" as “cringe” while others did not like her pink pants - "pink pants don’t look good.” In fact, her ensembles have always been incongruous.

"Let’s see how the (Governor's) Vice-Chancellors are given salary." Mamata's extreme statements will put the Marxist Government in Kerala, which is also facing similar issues, to shame. Has she begun the countdown for a war on the streets?

It's true Mamata has come to see a conspiracy to demolish the established systems across the country, but lacks the ability to foresee what exactly is being pushed.

Brandishing a sword, Mahant Paramhans told reporters on Tuesday he himself will behead MK Stalin's son for his remarks against Sanatan Dharma in case nobody came forward to accept his offer he made in his video. Udhayanidhi reacted to the saint's Monday video, "I will speak more. I am the grandson of the artist who put his head on the rail track for Tamil Nadu."

Somanath elaborated, "I am an explorer. I explore the Moon. I explore the inner space. So it's a part of the journey of my life to explore both science and spirituality. So I visit many temples and I read many scriptures. So try to find the meaning of our existence and our journey in this cosmos. So it's a part of the culture that we are all built to explore, find out the inner self as well as outer self. So for the outer, I do science, for the inner I come to temples." (See videos)
