ANI Photo | Pune car accident: From legal viewpoint, it’s an easy case to get bail, says advocate

In the case of Pune car accident that killed two IT professionals on May 19, advocate Asim Saraode said the matter is not very difficult according to the point of view of law and it is a very easy case to get bail.
Speaking with ANI, advocate Asim Saraode said, “This is not a very difficult case according to the point of view of the law. There are some emotions and human rights violations involved. The rash negligent driving has killed two persons and that is a very serious issue.”
He added further, “But from the point of view of law, this is a very easy case to get bail. The police claim they need to investigate and analyse the DCR and the driver needs to be investigated because he has been arrested today. Other reasons were not new so the court has not considered the request and sent the accused to the magisterial custody till June 7…”
Meanwhile, the Pune Commissioner of Police on Friday assured that the accused minor who was in his “senses” at the time of accident “will be punished”.
“We are investigating both the case minutely and with full sensitivity. We are making a watertight case. The allegations of any preferential treatment given to the Minor are being investigated by an ACP rank officer…The victim will get justice and the accused will be punished,” Pune Commissioner of Police, Amitesh Kumar told reporters here.
The Pune Police commissioner said that efforts were on to try the minor accused as an adult. “We have started the process of appointing a special counsel in the case so that our side should be kept strongly in the case in court. Police are on the stringent way to handle this case,” CP Kumar added.
CP Kumar also asserted that the Police had accessed the CCTV footage of the accused drinking liquor in the pub (before the accident).
“We have CCTV footage of him drinking liquor in the pub… The point of saying this is that our case is not alone depending on the blood report, we have other evidence also. He (the minor accused) was in his senses. It was not as if all of them were so drunk that they could not understand anything. They had full knowledge that due to their conduct, an incident like section 304 could happen…,” he added.
The Pune City Police on Thursday questioned the 17-year-old’s grandfather in connection with the horrific hit-and-run incident.
The minor ploughed his swanky Porsche into the two IT professionals, who were travelling on a bike, killing them on the spot.
Two young IT professionals from Madhya Pradesh, identified as Ashwini Koshta and Aneesh Awadhia, were killed in the accident on the night of May 19
