Pune Porsche car crash case: Accused teen's blood sample 'swapped' with mother's to manipulate alcohol test

Pune Porsche car crash case: In a shocking turn of events, the blood sample of a Pune teenager, whose late-evening Porsche drive resulted in the deaths of two young engineers, may have been swapped with his mother's to manipulate the alcohol test report and exonerate him.

Investigations into Pune Porsche car crash case have uncovered significant irregularities in the 17-year-old’s medical examination at the state-run Sassoon Hospital. In response, Maharashtra Medical Education appointed a three-member committee, led by Dr Pallavi Sapale, dean of Mumbai-based Grants Medical College, to investigate the matter. According to police sources, the panel’s report reveals that blood samples from a woman and two elderly men were collected with the intention of switching the teen's sample. The police suspect that one of these samples was from the teen’s mother.


Police are now planning to collect new samples from suspects to further investigate the matter. Efforts to locate the teen’s mother have been unsuccessful as she was not found at her home.

Earlier, the teen’s mother appeared in a video message claiming that a viral video allegedly showing her son was fake. She appealed to the police to protect her son and broke down on camera.


Currently, the teen is in an observation home, while his realtor father and grandfather have been arrested. It is alleged that the family tried to pressure their driver into taking the blame for the accident. If it is confirmed that the sample in question is the mother’s, it would implicate another family member in the cover-up attempt.

Aneesh Awadhiya and Ashwini Kostha, both 24-year-old engineers from Madhya Pradesh, were killed when a speeding Porsche hit their bike late on May 19. The teen, alleged to have been driving drunk, was released on bail within 15 hours under conditions criticised as lenient—he was required to write a 300-word essay, work with traffic police for 15 days, and seek treatment for his drinking habit.
