The CCTV camera footage from a pub purportedly shows the teenager, who is the son of a renowned real estate developer in the city, purportedly drinking liquor with his friends.

“There should be a judicial inquiry into the Pune accident that claimed the lives of two innocent people. There is a question mark on Pune Police's investigation, therefore a judicial inquiry should be conducted in this case. The police have reported that the alcohol test of the accused in the Pune accident was negative. The CCTV footage of the accused, who is a minor, is drunk and this report is raising a question mark on the police investigation,” Vijay Wadettiwar wrote in Marathi.

“How did the minor accused get access to alcohol? How did an unregistered car come on the road in Pune? Do bars and pubs open by breaking the rules? If so, why is there no action against them? Why did it take so long to arrest the accused's father knowing that he is a minor? That is why we demand a judicial inquiry into the said incident and also an inquiry into the Pune Police in this case,” he added.

The Pune Police, meanwhile, has also arrested the owner and manager of the bar for allegedly serving liquor to the 17-year-old boy.

“The city police arrested the bar owner and the bar manager who served liquor to the minor accused on the night of the accident,” Pune CP Amitesh Kumar told ANI.

Accused granted bail

The Juvenile Justice Board has granted bail to the teenager asking him to write a 300-word essay. The police on Monday said they would seek a higher court's permission to prosecute him as an adult accused. The police has also registered a case against his father.

The Porsche car knocked down the two persons on a motorbike in Kalyani Nagar area in Pune city around 3.15am on Sunday, causing their death.

The youngster was produced before the Juvenile Justice Board which granted him bail hours later. It also directed him to visit the Regional Transport Office and study traffic rules, and submit a presentation to the Board within 15 days.
