Pune, 29th May 2024: An intervention application has been filed in the Pune sessions court, challenging the police’s handling of the May 19 Porsche Taycan crash that resulted in the deaths of two techies in Kalyaninagar. Social activist Anand Dave submitted the application through his lawyer, Satya Muley, raising serious concerns about the “reliefs” provided to the underage driver, his father, and his grandfather.

The application questions several aspects of the police investigation. It queries why the family driver of the teenager was released in the initial hours following the accident, allowing an opportunity for the teenager’s grandfather to potentially influence the driver to take the blame.

Additional questions include why the vehicle involved in the crash was examined after a significant delay, why the teenager’s two friends who were in the car at the time of the accident were not mentioned in any official records, and why other friends present at the party that night were not detained for questioning.

The incident occurred on May 19, when a Porsche Taycan driven by a 17-year-old collided with a motorcycle, killing two IT engineers, Aneesh Awadhiya and Ashwini Koshta, both 24 and from Jabalpur, Madhya Pradesh.

The handling of the case by the authorities has drawn public scrutiny and criticism, leading to calls for a more thorough and transparent investigation.
