Anish Awadhiya and Ashwini Koshta, both aged 24, were returning home on a bike after a dinner with a group of friends when the speeding Porsche hit them in the wee hours of May 19 in Pune's Kalyani Nagar.

The case triggered nationwide outrage after the minor was granted bail by the Juvenile Justice Board on lenient terms, asking him to write a 300-word essay on road safety and working with the Yerwada Traffic Police for 15 days. 

"The five-member committee submitted its report on Friday to the Women and Child Development department commissioner. The WCD department, after receipt of the report, has issued notices to two JJB members who were appointed by the department," an official told PTI.
