According to a senior official, the boy’s father was later brought to Pune, where he was arrested.

Among others arrested include Pralhad Bhutada, owner of Cosie and Sandip Sangale, owner of Blak Club.

“We arrested license holders of two restaurants and one more person late last night and they will be produced in the court today,” said Kumar.

The minor’s father is a prominent real estate developer from the city whose Porsche was driven without a registration number.

The arrest comes a day after the teenager’s father, and four others including owner of restaurant Cosie and Blak Club along with their managers were booked under relevant sections of the Motor Vehicles Act (MVA) and the Juvenile Justice Act (JJA) for failing to perform his duty as a guardian.

According to officials, Yerawada police arrested the father for allowing the minor to drive vehicle without license while restaurant owners and staff were booked for serving liquor to the minor.

The police have also imposed several charges namely under section 3 (No person shall drive a motor vehicle in any public place unless he holds an effective driving license), 5 (owner or person in charge of a motor vehicle is responsible for ensuring that no one who doesn’t meet the provisions of sections 3 or 4 drives the vehicle), 199A (Use of the motor vehicle by the juvenile presumed to be with the consent of the guardian) of the Motor Vehicle Act 1988 and section 75 (punishment, if any person having control of child, assaults, abandons, abuses or willfully neglects the child ) and 77 (punishment for exploitation of a child employee) of Juvenile Justice (Care and Protection of Children) Act, 2015.

The action comes after police found out that the Porsche car he had bought for his son in March this year was not yet registered.
