The father of the 17-year-old boy involved in a fatal car accident that killed two people has been arrested by Pune Police from Maharashtra’s Aurangabad. Additionally, the owners of a couple of bars where the minor was served alcohol have also been arrested.

The accident took place in the early hours of Sunday morning in Pune’s Kalyani Nagar area. According to police reports, a luxury Porsche, driven by the 17-year-old, collided with a motorcycle, instantly killing Anis Awadhiya and Ashwini Koshta. The crash, captured on CCTV, revealed the car travelling at an estimated speed of 200 kmph in a narrow lane.

The case has now been transferred to Pune Police’s crime branch. While awaiting a decision from the sessions court, Pune police have charged the boy’s father under sections 75 and 77 of the Juvenile Justice Act. These sections pertain to willful neglect of a child and providing intoxicating substances to a minor, respectively.

Aneesh Awadhiya and Ashwini Koshta, both IT engineers, were returning from a get-together when around 2:15 am, their bike was hit from behind by the speeding Porsche. Both of them died on the spot.
