Pune Porsche accident: Attempt being made to frame driver, reveals top cop

Pune Porsche accident: Pune Police Commissioner Amitesh Kumar stated on Friday that an attempt is being made to frame a driver instead of the 17-year-old teenager accused of running over two persons. He further stated that shortly after the crash, an attempt was made to switch drivers so that the teen wouldn't land in trouble.

"It's true that the driver initially stated that he was driving the car. We are looking into this part, as well as who was pressuring the driver to make that statement. "Efforts were made to change the driver during that time. We are also looking into this," Kumar said at a press briefing. He denied allegations that the car was being driven by the driver, claiming that they had video footage to establish that the 17-year-old was driving the luxurious vehicle.


"We have CCTV evidence of him drinking alcohol at the pub. The point is that our case is not; based on the blood report, we have more evidence. He (the minor accused) was fully conscious. It wasn't like they were all intoxicated and couldn't understand anything. They were fully aware that an incident like Section 304 could occur as a result of their actions," the Pune Commissioner stated.

Earlier, the 17-year-old youngster who was injured in the Pune tragedy stated that the driver was his family member at the time of the incident. The minor's accusations were supported by his two friends who were present when the tragedy occurred.

The teenager was in the vehicle that collided with a motorcycle, killing two persons.
