Pune, June 2 – The parents of the minor accused in the Kalyani Nagar accident case, Vishal Agarwal and Shivani Agarwal, have been placed in police custody until June 5. The judicial magistrate first class made this decision in light of allegations that the parents tampered with and replaced the blood samples of their child and provided bribes to medical professionals.

On Sunday afternoon, the Agarwals were brought before the magistrate under heavy police security. The investigating officer presented evidence suggesting that the parents attempted to shield their 17-year-old son by substituting his blood sample with that of his mother. This tampering was confirmed by a report from the Regional Forensic Science Laboratory of Maharashtra.

The officer highlighted the need for a thorough investigation to uncover the orchestrators of this crime. He also noted the necessity of collecting DNA samples from the parents and investigating the source of the Rs 3 lakh allegedly given to doctors. Additionally, a search of the Agarwals’ residence is required, warranting their remand to police custody for further investigation.

The assistant public prosecutor emphasized the severity of the parents’ actions, arguing that instead of allowing justice to take its course, they engaged in illegal activities to protect their son. 

Defense lawyer Prashant Patil countered this by stating that the police had ample time for their investigation and that further police custody was unnecessary. He argued that the mother had already been detained since the previous morning and that the parents were cooperating with the investigation, suggesting that magistrate custody would suffice.

After hearing arguments from both sides, the magistrate decided to remand the parents to police custody until June 5. 

This decision underscores the gravity of the allegations and the ongoing need for an in-depth investigation into the tampering incident and the alleged bribery involved.
