Pune Porsche Crash: 17-Year-Old Juvenile Remand Extended Till June 25

Pune: The prosecution informed the Juvenile Justice Board (JJB) that the remand of the 17-year-old Porsche Taycan driver in an observation home needed to be extended as there was a threat to his life outside, and also there was nobody to take care of him since his parents and grandparents were already in police custody.
Special Assistant Public Prosecutor Monali Kale also informed Akshi Jain, the officiating principal magistrate of the JJB, that the police had not yet received the teenager's final de-addiction and psychological evaluation reports, as per the Times of India report.
Additionally, Kale stated that the minor's identity had become public after videos of events following the May 19 crash went viral on social media. She mentioned that the teenager's parents were in police custody until June 20, facing charges of manipulating his blood alcohol report, while his grandfather was incarcerated in Yerawada central jail due to his involvement in the abduction of their family driver, who was coerced to take the blame for the accident.
Kale further informed that the police were continuing their investigation into the car crash. The 17-year-old was initially sent to the observation home on May 22, and his detention was extended until June 12 on June 5. On Wednesday, ACP Sunil Tambe from the crime branch submitted a fresh plea through the prosecutor seeking a 14-day extension of the remand.
However, Lawyer Prashant Patil, representing the teenager, invoked section 12 (bail to a person who is apparently a child alleged to be in conflict with the law) of the Juvenile Justice (Care and Protection of Children) Act, arguing that the detention had become illegal. Patil emphasised that the minor had cooperated with the investigating officer during questioning and expressed a desire to pursue higher education by seeking admission to college after passing his Standard XII board examination. He referenced a Supreme Court verdict in Shilpa Mittal vs State of NCT of Delhi and argued that section 304 (culpable homicide not amounting to murder) of the Indian Penal Code should not be considered a heinous crime under the JJ Act.
After hearing both arguments, the principal magistrate extended the teenager's detention in the observation home until June 25. On May 19, at 2:30 AM, the 17-year-old allegedly collided the Porsche into a motorcycle in Kalyaninagar, resulting in the deaths of two software engineers riding on it.
