A Pune court has granted bail to a 17-year-old boy who was behind the wheels of a speeding Porsche car that rammed into a bike killing two people. The bail was granted just 15 hours after his arrest, sparking an outrage.

The teenager’s lawyer Prashant Patil said the court granted bail on certain conditions. He has to work with traffic police in Yerwada for 15 days, write an essay on accidents, undergo treatment for his drinking habit and take counselling sessions, reported NDTV.

Police said that they will appeal against the bail, and will treat the accused as an adult.

They said cases under sections 75 and 77 of the Juvenile Justice Act will be registered against the minor’s father and the bar that allegedly served liquor to the boy.

As per section 75 of the Juvenile Justice Act, a person with actual control or charge of a child can be punished if he assaults, abandons or neglects the child wilfully, and abuses him, causing mental or physical illness. Section 77 pertains to giving liquor or drugs to a child. 

The accident took place around 3.15 am on Sunday in Kalyani Nagar when the luxury car, reportedly at a speed of over 200 km per hour, hit the bike and crashed into the roadside pavement railings.

The bike riders were flung into the air and fell hard, resulting in fatal injuries. Both of them died on the spot.

The deceased have been identified as Aneesh Awadhiya and Ashwini Koshta—both engineers from Madhya Pradesh working in Pune. They were returning home along with other friends after a party at a restaurant in the area.
