The court also remanded him to an Observation Home till June 5.

The two motorbike-borne IT professionals – Aneesh Awadhiya and Ashwini Costa – were killed after being knocked down by a speeding luxury vehicle driven by a minor boy allegedly under the influence of alcohol on Sunday.

The deceased, both 24, were on their way back from an impromptu dinner with a group of friends when the speeding Porsche hit them.

The minor, the son of a well-known real estate developer, was granted bail hours after the incident under the condition that he would work with the Yerwada traffic police for 15 days and write an essay on road accidents.

The bail conditions drew widespread criticism following which the Pune Police said they would appeal against the order in a higher court. It had then approached the Board again, seeking a review of its order and permission to treat the teenager as an adult accused on the ground that the crime was of heinous nature.

The police also arrested four people in connection with the case, including the teen's father and managers of the bar which served alcohol to him.
