Vishal Agarwal, the father of the teen who killed two persons in a road accident involving his Porsche car, was sent to police custody till Friday (May 24) in the road accident case. Agarwal was produced by the police in Pune Sessions Court today.

Hours before court's order on police custody, some persons allegedly tried to throw ink at the police vehicle in which Agarwal was being brought to a local court.

The incident occurred around 2.30 pm when the teenager's father, who was placed under arrest on Tuesday evening after being detained from central Maharashtra's Chhatrapati Sambhajinagar town, was being brought to the court complex in Shivajinagar area for his production before the additional sessions court judge.

"As per the preliminary information, four to five people belonging to some outfit tried to throw ink at the police vehicle escorting the father of the juvenile accused," a Pune police official said.

According to the police, after the car crash, they had registered a case against the teenager's father under sections 75 and 77 of the Juvenile Justice Act and relevant provisions of the Indian Penal Code (IPC). Section 75 deals with "wilful neglect of a child or exposing a child to mental or physical illnesses" while section 77 deals with supplying a child with intoxicating liquor or drugs.

What was the case?

The car, a Porsche, allegedly driven by the boy, who the police claim was drunk at the time of the accident, fatally knocked down two motorbike-borne software engineers in the Kalyani Nagar area of Pune city in the early hours of Sunday.

Maharashtra Deputy Chief Minister Devendra Fadnavis, who holds the home portfolio, on Tuesday asserted no police negligence has come to light while handling the car crash case and denied any kind of pressure on cops probing it.
