Pune Porsche Accident Victim's Mother SHOCKED After Alleged Teen Driver Gets Out On Bail: 'Understand My Pain'
The Bombay High Court's recent decision to release a minor allegedly involved in a fatal Porsche car crash has ignited a wave of strong emotions, particularly from the family of one of the victims. Mamta Koshta, the mother of Ashwini Koshta, who perished in the crash, has been vocal in expressing her grief and disappointment. Ashwini Koshta and her friend Anish Awadhiya, both IT professionals from Madhya Pradesh, tragically lost their lives in the early hours of May 19 when a Porsche, allegedly driven by an inebriated teenager, collided with their two-wheeler in Pune's Kalyani Nagar area.


Mamta Koshta conveyed her shock upon learning about the court's decision. She maintains her faith in the judiciary but implores the judges to recognize the profound pain experienced by a mother who has lost her child. She emphasized the need for appropriate punishment to ensure public trust in the judicial system. Recalling the Maharashtra government's assurance of justice, she underscored the importance of such incidents not recurring and the necessity for lessons to be learned by those who commit such crimes. "Many girls live there and such incidents should not recur. Those who commit such crimes should learn a lesson. I only request the judges to make the right decision,” she told reporters.

The High Court's ruling on Tuesday resulted in the release of the minor accused in the Pune Porsche crash case. The court also approved a habeas corpus plea to annul the remand orders that had placed the minor in an observation home. Justices Bharati Dangre and Manjusha Deshpande, who delivered the verdict, highlighted the legal framework of the Juvenile Justice Act, emphasizing that the law requires treating minors in conflict with the law differently from adults, irrespective of the crime's severity. "We are bound by law, the aims and objectives of the Juvenile Justice Act and must treat him as any child in conflict with law separately from adult, despite the seriousness of the crime,” they stated.

The court deemed the Juvenile Justice Board's order to remand the teenager to an observation home as illegal and beyond its jurisdiction. The judges pointed out that the boy is undergoing rehabilitation, which includes continued psychological sessions, stressing that rehabilitation is the "primary objective." They noted, “The CCL (child in conflict with the law) is under 18. His age needs to be considered.”

This decision followed a habeas corpus petition filed by the boy’s aunt, who sought his release from the government observation home. With the minor’s parents and grandfather arrested for attempting to cover up the incident, the boy will now be under his aunt's care. This ruling has sparked a broader conversation about justice, accountability, and the treatment of juvenile offenders, particularly in cases involving severe consequences.
