“We will use digital tools to recreate the Porsche car accident scene, wherein we can recreate how the entire episode unfolded. It will reveal at what time the juvenile left his home, which route he took to reach the said bar, at what time he reached the accident spot and how the accident occurred,” said Amitesh Kumar, Pune city police commissioner.

Shailesh Balkawade, additional commissioner of police, (crime) said, “The accused is a minor and the Porsche car that he was allegedly driving is also damaged in this accident, hence it is difficult for us to recreate the accident with conventional ways, hence we have decided to take help of technology.’’

According to Balkawade, it is vital for the police to recreate an accident scene so that it can be used as corroborated evidence in court during the case trial.
