BREAKING - Pune Porsche CrashIn the latest development in the Pune Porsche Crash Case, Vishal Agarwal, the father of the 17-year-old accused, has been sent to police custody until May 24. Vishal Agarwal, a real estate developer who reportedly has underworld connections, had been absconding right after his son crashed his Porsche car in the city’s Kalyani Nagar on Sunday night, reportedly in a drunk state after partying in two local pubs. 

The car crash caused the immediate death of two people, Aneesh Awadhiya and Ashwini Koshta. Both were 24 years old and hailed from Madhya Pradesh, and were working as software engineers in Pune. The 17-year-old teen was given bail, causing a furore in the city over alleged special treatment meted out to a rich man's son.
