Two Pune Police personnel were on Friday suspended for not informing the wireless control room about the Porsche accident involving the teenager which led to the deaths of two software engineers.

Earlier in the day, the Pune police commissioner alleged an attempt to tamper with the evidence to show that the Porsche that crushed Aneesh Awadhiya and Ashwini Koshta was driven by the family driver and not the 17-year-old son of realtor Vishal Agarwal.

“We have the CCTV footage of him (juvenile) drinking liquor in the pub. The point of saying this is that our case is not alone depending on the blood report as we have other evidence also.He (juvenile) was fully in his senses, He had full knowledge that due to his conduct, such an accident, where section 304 is applicable, can happen,” Amitesh Kumar was quoted by PTI as saying.

The Pune Police commissioner also responded to allegations of a preferential
treatment given to the juvenile, saying,"We have clearly said that a pizza party didn't happen in the police station. But yes, something had happened on which we have initiated an internal investigation. We are trying to make this a water tight case."
