Pune, 22nd May 2024: Vanchit Bahujan Aghadi (VBA) leader Prakash Ambedkar has expressed his outrage over the preferential treatment allegedly given by Pune police to the teen accused of driving a Porsche and killing two IT professionals in Kalyani Nagar on May 19.

Ambedkar stated, “Officers at Yerawada police station spent more time questioning the relationship between Aneesh and Ashwini — the two IT professionals who were fatally knocked down by the drunk minor — while the accused was allegedly served burger and pizza. This is how the system benefits the privileged and rich.”

He raised several critical questions about the incident:
1. “How was a minor served alcohol in the club?”
2. “How did the showroom release the vehicle without registration numbers?”
3. “How did the vehicle fail to catch the eye of the traffic police?”
4. “How did the accused get bail and not get sent to juvenile custody?”
5. “Why was the alcohol test done after 8 hours?”
6. “Did the Deputy CM come to Pune to ensure justice for the victims or to ensure that the builder’s son goes free?”

Ambedkar emphasized, “The authorities have sprung into action after an uproar from all quarters, and not because they thought it was the right thing to do. If anyone should be thanked for the authorities finally doing what they are supposed to do, it is the citizens of Pune.”

He also expressed his condolences to the families of the victims, saying, “Anju and I are parents. The loss of a child is a pain like no other. Our hearts go out to the parents of the victims.”
