Pune: Teen driver’s father arrested by Police after escape plan foils.

In the early hours of Sunday in Kalyani Nagar, Pune, a tragic incident occurred where a Porsche, purportedly driven by a 17-year-old teenager named Vedant Agarwal allegedly under the influence of alcohol, struck and killed two software engineers riding a motorbike. The 17-year-old boy’s father, Vishal Agarwal, has been detained by the police and will remain in custody until May 24. Despite having a complex escape plan, the father was found by the police.

According to police statements, Following the filing of a police report against him for allowing his teenage son to drive his luxury vehicle, a prominent real estate developer from Pune vanished. To evade authorities, he left his residence in one car, instructing his chauffer to head towards Mumbai, while he directed another driver to head for Goa in a separate vehicle. Along the route to Mumbai, he exiled the car and switched to a friend’s vehicle to proceed towards Chhatrapati Sambhajinagar, formally known as Aurangabad.

According to authorities, employing multiple vehicles to confuse police enforcement, the realtor also acquired a new SIM card to prevent police from tracing his phone. Police began to use the car’s GPS to trace him after discovering that he was in his friend’s car, afterwards, a team from the Pune crime branch used footage from the route’s CCTV cameras to identify him. Subsequently, in a nocturnal operation at a lodge in Sambhajinagra, authorities apprehended the real estate magnate. He is scheduled to appear in court today for legal proceedings.

The tragic incident unfolded on Saturday night, which claimed the lives of Aneesh Awadhiya and Ashwini Koshtha both 24-year-old from Madhya Pradesh. They were riding their bikes and returning from a get-together when the Porsche, which was traveling at 200km/h, struck them from behind. The two IT engineers instantly passed away. At the time of the accident, the teenager and his two friends were on their way back from the bar.

Additionally, two owners and employees have been detained by police for serving alcohol to minors. By sections 75 and 77 of the Juvenile Justice Act and pertinent provisions of the Indian Penal Code (IPC), the police had filed a complaint against the father of the teenager. Giving a teenager alcohol and substances that are likely to make them intoxicated to covered under section 77, while section 75 deals with “willful neglect of a child, or exposing a child to mental or physical illnesses”
