Pune Porsche Crash: Police Arrest Minor’s Mother for Tampering with Blood Samples

In a significant development in the Pune Porsche crash case, the Pune Police on Saturday arrested the mother of the teenage driver involved in the fatal accident. This follows allegations that she facilitated the tampering of her son’s blood sample after the crash. The arrest was confirmed by Pune Police Commissioner Amitesh Kumar. This marks the fourth arrest within the family, with the minor, his father, and grandfather already in custody.

The arrest comes on the heels of revelations by the Pune Police to a local court that the juvenile driver’s blood sample had allegedly been swapped with that of a woman. Two doctors from Sassoon General Hospital have also been arrested for their alleged role in manipulating the blood sample.

“Following the accident, the Yerawada police station directed the juvenile, his  buddies who have been withinside the car, and the own circle of relatives motive force to Sassoon General Hospital for blood pattern collection. Of these samples, the juvenile’s was the one that got swapped. The results of the other three samples showed no traces of alcohol,” a police officer informed PTI.

The tragic incident occurred in the early hours of May 19 in Pune’s Kalyani Nagar, when a Porsche, allegedly driven by the intoxicated minor, collided with a two-wheeler, killing two software engineers, Anish Awadhiya and Ashwini Koshta. The 17-year-old driver has since been placed in an observation home. His father, Vishal Agarwal, a real estate developer, and his grandfather, Surendra Agarwal, were arrested for allegedly kidnapping the family driver and coercing him to take responsibility for the crash.

The Pune Police have acquired permission to impeach the minor withinside the presence of his counsellors and own circle of relatives members. The questioning will take place at the Yerawada Correction Centre, where the minor is lodged, and will last for at least two hours.

Initially, the juvenile was granted bail by the Juvenile Justice Board (JJB) with a condition to write a 300-word essay, a decision that sparked widespread public outrage. The Pune Police subsequently appealed to the JJB, which resulted in the boy being remanded to an observation home for 14 days until June 5.

This case has drawn significant attention due to the involvement of high-profile individuals and the serious charges of evidence tampering and manipulation. The arrests highlight the lengths to which the family allegedly went to protect the minor, further complicating the legal proceedings.

The police are continuing their investigation into the case, focusing on the roles played by each of the arrested family members and the hospital staff. The case has also raised broader questions about accountability and the influence of affluent families in legal matters.

As the investigation progresses, the Pune Police are expected to uncover more details about the alleged tampering and the subsequent efforts to shield the minor from legal consequences. The case underscores the importance of a fair judicial process and the challenges law enforcement faces in high-profile cases involving powerful individuals.
