A 17-year-old driver who was behind the wheel of a sports car involved in a deadly collision in Pune was granted bail by a juvenile court, subject to certain conditions. The accident, which took place early Sunday morning in Koregaon Park, claimed the lives of a couple on a two-wheeler.

While details of the bail hearing weren't made public, police officials say the court found the crime not "serious" enough to deny bail. According to the court's order, which came within 14 hours of the minor's detention, several conditions were imposed on his release:

  • Working alongside traffic police for 15 days.

  • Undergoing psychiatric evaluation and treatment.

  • Writing a 300-word essay on "effect of road accidents and their solution".

  • Seeking rehabilitation at a de-addiction centre.

  • Studying traffic rules and giving a presentation on same to the Juvenile Justice Board.

  • Assisting accident victims in the future, if he witnesses one.

The teenager, the son of a famous builder, reportedly rammed the Porsche he was driving into a motorbike carrying Anis Dudhiya and Ashwini Costa. According to the police FIR, Costa died on the spot, while Dudhiya succumbed to injuries at the hospital.
