Pune: The Pune Porsche accident case, where a 17-year-old boy allegedly crashed a luxury car into a motorcycle, resulting in the deaths of two young software engineers last month, has taken a new turn with the emergence of new CCTV camera footage.
According to a report by news agency PTI, the footage, recorded in the Yerwada area, allegedly shows an employee of Sassoon General Hospital implicated in a scheme to swap the juvenile driver's blood samples, receiving a bribe. The police have identified a middleman, Ashpak Makandar, who reportedly handed over the bribe to hospital employee Atul Ghatkamble.
Reportedly, the bribe amounting to Rs 3 lakh was exchanged at the premises of the Juvenile Justice Board (JJB). Ghatkamble, along with the hospital's suspended forensics department head, Dr. Ajay Taware, and former casualty medical officer, Dr. Shrihari Halnor, were previously arrested for allegedly tampering with the minor's blood samples.
The police investigation revealed that the minor's blood sample was initially collected on May 19, shortly after the incident, at Sassoon General Hospital. Suspicions arose regarding the sample's authenticity, prompting authorities to obtain another sample at Aundh Government Hospital. Subsequently, a third blood sample from the juvenile's father was taken for DNA matching, confirming manipulation in the initial sample.
In connection with the alleged blood sample swapping, the police have also arrested the accused's parents. The fatal incident occurred on May 19 in Pune's Kalyani Nagar area when the minor, driving a Porsche at a reported speed of 160 kmph, collided with a motorcycle, resulting in the deaths of Anis Awadhiya and Ashwini Costa, both techies.
Further investigations revealed that the teenager, son of a prominent builder, had hosted a party for friends to celebrate his Class 12 results. The group consumed alcohol at various restaurants and engaged in night-time driving activities.
The police have filed three separate cases related to the incident, including one for the accident itself, another against a pub allegedly serving liquor to the minor, and a case against the accused's father for permitting him to drive without a valid licence. Additionally, a case has been registered regarding the wrongful confinement and coercion of the family driver to take the blame for the accident, resulting in the arrest of the accused's grandfather.
Meanwhile, the JJB has extended the accused's observation home remand until June 25 to facilitate ongoing investigations. Authorities assert that the release of the teenager at this juncture could impede progress in the case.
