Pune Porsche accident case: Amid a growing chorus for justice for the two IT professionals, who were mowed to death by a teen driving a Porsche, the Pune Commissioner of Police today (May 24) assured that the accused minor who was in his senses at the time of the accident and will be punished.

"We are investigating both the case minutely and with full sensitivity. We are making a watertight case. The allegations of any preferential treatment given to the minor are being investigated by an ACP rank officer. The victim will get justice and the accused will be punished," Pune Commissioner of Police, Amitesh Kumar told media in a press conference.

The Pune Police commissioner said that efforts were on to try the minor accused as an adult. "We have started the process of appointing a special counsel in the case so that our side should be kept strongly in the case in court. Police are on the stringent way to handle this case," CP Kumar added.

Investigation of driver underway

Confirming that an effort was made to frame the driver after the accident, CP Kumar said police are investigating the statement of the driver.

"Effort was made to frame the driver during that period. We are investigating this also and it is true that at the start the driver had said that he was driving the car. We are investigating this part also under whose pressure the driver made that statement we are investigating it."

CP Kumar also asserted that the Police had accessed the CCTV footage of the accused drinking liquor in the pub (before the accident).

Minor was drinking alcohol in pub 

"We have the CCTV footage of him drinking liquor in the pub. The point of saying this is that our case is not alone depending on the blood report, we have other evidence also. He (the minor accused) was in his senses. It was not as if all of them were so drunk that they could not understand anything. They had full knowledge that due to their conduct, an incident like section 304 could happen. There is no fact about the pizza party at the police station," he added.

He also said that there was no truth in the allegations of the accused being given preferential treatment and promised to take action against police personnel for any negligence.

"On the allegations of preferential treatment given to the accused as of now, nothing has been found in the investigation. If we receive any information that the eyewitness had to face any trouble, action will be taken against those police personnel as well. We have not received the blood report yet. The blood report was taken at the very first and sent to forensics. We have requested the forensics to take a DNA sample of both the samples," CP Kumar said.
