Pune Porsche Crash Case: Bombay High Court Questions Confinement of Juvenile Granted Bail

In a significant development in the Pune Porsche crash case, the Bombay High Court on Friday questioned whether it amounted to unlawful confinement when a juvenile, granted bail, was subsequently taken back into custody and placed in an observation home

The incident, which occurred on May 19, involved a 17-year-old in an intoxicated state, who crashed into a two-wheeler, killing software engineers Anish Awadhiya and Ashwini Koshta. Although the teenager was arrested promptly, he was released shortly after, sparking a national outcry.

A division bench comprising Justices Bharati Dangre and Manjusha Deshpande highlighted the dual nature of the tragedy, stating, “Two people have lost their lives. There was trauma, but the child was also in trauma.” The court also inquired under which legal provision the bail order for the minor was amended, leading to his confinement.

This development follows a petition filed by the accused teen’s aunt in the Bombay High Court, seeking his immediate release on the grounds of illegal detention. The habeas corpus petition accuses Pune police of manipulating the legal process and violating the rule of law.

The petition argues that the juvenile’s continued detention contradicts the provisions of the Juvenile Justice (Care and Protection of Children) Act, 2015.
