The mother of the 17-year-old boy, who allegedly crashed his Porsche car into two Pune techies leading to their death, has asked the police to protect her son after a fake video purportedly showing him boasting about how he got away went viral.

Meanwhile, a senior police official will quiz the officers and the staff of the Yerwada station over the allegation that they underplayed the horrific nature of the incident. They allegedly delayed the medical examination to establish the boy's blood alcohol level, reported NDTV.

Vanchit Bahujan Aghadi chief Prakash Ambedkar claimed the teen was served burger and pizza during police's detention.

"Officers at Yerwada Police Station spent more time questioning the relationship between Anish and Ashwini - IT professionals fatally knocked down by a drunk minor -while the accused was allegedly served burger and pizza" he wrote on X.

The police have denied the allegation.

Earlier, the teenager was produced before the Juvenile Justice Board (JJB), which granted him bail while asking him to write a 300-word essay. After an outrage, the bail was cancelled and the boy was sent to a remand home.

The police later also arrested his father for allowing his son to drive the car without the driving license.

According to the police, the driver of the accused's father had called him to inform that his son wanted to drive the car. The father, a realtor, allegedly asked the driver to hand over the car to his son.

The boy had allegedly spent close to 70,000 in two bars before the accident. The police have arrested the owners of the bars for serving him liquor.
