The accident occurred in the early hours of May 19 in Kalyani Nagar, Pune, where a Porsche, allegedly driven by the intoxicated minor, collided with a two-wheeler, killing two IT professionals on the spot.

The 17-year-old driver, heavily intoxicated and reportedly driving at nearly 200 kmph, crashed into the bike, resulting in the deaths of two young engineers from Madhya Pradesh.

The minor has been sent to an observation home, while his father, realtor Vishal Agarwal, and grandfather, Surendra Agarwal, have been arrested for allegedly kidnapping the family’s driver and pressuring him to take the blame for the accident.
