Pune Porsche Accident: The Juvenile Justice Board on Wednesday remanded the teen, who allegedly crashed his luxury car into a motorbike killing two persons in Pune, to a rehabilitation home (observation centre) till June 5.

The court has not yet taken any decision on whether the minor accused should be treated like an adult or not. He is being sent to Children Demand Home and will remain under observation till June 5.

During this time, a decision can be taken by June 5 whether he will treated like an adult in this case or not.

Pune Police Commissioner, Amitesh Kumar, while speaking in the matter, said, "We had filed in a review application before the Juvenile Justice Board to allow the juvenile to be tried as an adult and also to send him in the remand home. The operative order was communicated to us by the Juvenile Justice Board and the said juvenile accused has been sent to the remand home for 15 days, till June 5. The order of him being tried as an adult is awaited at the moment.."

Earlier today, the Juvenile Justice Board issued a notice to a 17-year-old boy to appear before it. This comes after the Pune police approached the board with a petition to review its bail order.

The Porsche car, allegedly driven by the 17-year-old, who the police claim was drunk at the time, fatally knocked down two motorbike-borne software engineers at Kalyani Nagar in Maharashtra's Pune city in the early hours of Sunday.

The teenager, son of a real estate developer, was subsequently produced before the Juvenile Justice Board which granted him bail hours later.

"After we approached the board with the revision petition, it has issued a notice to the juvenile to appear before it," Additional Commissioner of Police Manoj Patil said.

The Pune police had approached a sessions court challenging the bail order and seeking permission to allow them to treat the body as an adult saying the crime committed was "heinous".

However, the court asked the police to approach the Juvenile Justice Board with a petition to review the order.

On the intervening night of Saturday and Sunday, the accused juvenile along with his friends went to the two establishments between 9.30 pm and 1 am and allegedly consumed liquor, police had said.

While passing the order on Sunday, the board stated the Child-in-Conflict with Law (CCL) is released on bail on executing his personal bond and surety bond of Rs 7,500 with conditions that his parents shall take care of him and he will never get involved in offences in future.

It also directed him to visit the Regional Transport Office and study traffic rules, and submit a presentation to the board within 15 days.

"The CCL will write an essay of 300 words on the topic of road accidents and their solutions," the order read.
