The police have arrested the teenager's father and grandfather in connection with the accident

Two doctors of Sassoon General Hospital in Pune were arrested on the charge of manipulation of the blood sample of a teen driver, an accused, in the Porsche car accident case.

Pune Police commissioner Amitesh Kumar said on Monday that Dr Ajay Taware, head of the forensics department at Sassoon Hospital in Pune, and Dr Shrihari Harnor, chief medical officer at Sassoon, were arrested for alleged manipulation in blood reports and tampering with the evidence in the case.

The Pune Porsche accident case is currently being probed by the crime branch. Two IT professionals died after their motorcycle was hit by a speeding Porsche allegedly driven by the minor in the early hours of May 19. 

The police claimed that the teenager was drunk at the time of the accident. The teenager was initially granted bail by the Juvenile Justice Board, which also asked him to write an essay on road accidents. Following outrage over the lenient treatment and a review application by the police, he was sent to an observation home till June 5.

The police have arrested the teenager’s father, who is a realtor, and his grandfather in connection with the accident.

Pressure on family driver

The probe into the case has revealed that apart from father and grandfather of the 17-year-old accused, his mother also requested the family’s driver to take the blame. 

The driver initially claimed he was at the wheel. Later, teenager’s father and grandfather confined him on the premises of their bungalow and confiscated his phone. He was later freed by wife after being confined and pressured by the family.

He was pressured to give a statement to the police as per their directions, police sources said, adding that the driver was offered gifts and cash for owning up to be driving the car at the time of the crash. He was also threatened. The Agarwal family offered to pay the driver “any amount he quoted,” the commissioner said.
