A friend of the 17-year-old who rammed his Porsche into two techies on May 19 in Pune, killing them, has admitted that the teen was driving and intoxicated at the time. Police sources confirmed this statement was recorded after six hours of questioning at the Pune Crime Branch office.


Initially, other friends claimed the family driver was behind the wheel, not the teen. This came after Pune Police Commissioner Amitesh Kumar revealed there was an attempt to falsely show the family driver, Gangaram, was driving during the crash.


Gangaram initially claimed he was driving, but later admitted he was forced to lie by the teen’s grandfather, who has been arrested for threatening him. The teenager, currently in a Children Observation Centre for 14 days, had been drinking at two bars before the crash.


The crash killed two IT professionals, Aneesh Awadhiya and Ashwini Koshta, both from Madhya Pradesh. Ashwini died on the spot, while Aneesh succumbed to his injuries shortly after being taken to a hospital.


Maharashtra Chief Minister Eknath Shinde has assured strict action, emphasizing that the law is equal for all, regardless of influence or wealth. He confirmed communication with the Pune police commissioner to ensure no discrimination in the investigation.


Police have also arrested Dr. Ajay Taware and Dr. Hari Halnor for allegedly tampering with the teen’s blood samples to hide alcohol consumption. A peon, Atul Ghatkamble, was arrested for facilitating the ₹ 3 lakh bribe for the doctors.


The teen’s father and grandfather remain in police custody as the investigation continues.
