Maharashtra Transport Commissioner Vivek Bhimanwar said that the 17-year-old boy, who fatally knocked down two motorbike-borne IT professions with his speeding Porsche car in Pune, will be barred from getting a driving license till he turns 25.

Top officials of the state transport department also said that the permanent registration of the luxury car was pending since March due to non-payment of Rs 1,748 fees by the owner.

Bhimanwar told news agency PTI that the electric luxury sports sedan -- Porsche Taycan -- will also not be allowed to register at any RTO office for 12 months since its existing temporary registration will be cancelled as per the provisions under the Motor Vehicles (MV) Act.

The Porsche was imported in March by a dealer in Bengaluru and from there it was sent to Maharashtra on a temporary registration.

"When it was produced at the Pune Regional Transport Office (RTO), it was found that a certain registration fee was not paid and the owner was asked to pay the amount for completion of the procedure. However, the vehicle was not brought to the RTO for the completion of the registration process after that," Bhimanwar said.

According to officials, road tax is exempted for electric vehicles registered in Maharashtra, and hence for the registration of this Porsche Taycan model, the registration fees that were applicable were only Rs 1,758 with the break-up of Rs 1,500 hypothecation fees, Rs 200 smart card RC fee and Rs 58 postal charges.

As per the Maharashtra transport department's records, the luxury vehicle had a valid temporary registration certificate issued by Karnataka with a validity of six months from March to September 2024.

The officials noted that with temporary registration, vehicles are only allowed to be driven to and from the RTO.

Bhimanwar said that their department is going to take strict action in this case and the Pune RTO has been asked to register the police complaint for the violation of MV Act provisions.


The 17-year-old son of the renowned Pune builder reportedly spent Rs 48,000 in 90 minutes at one of the two pubs that he visited before knocking down the motorbike-borne IT professionals.

A bill of Rs 48,000 was paid at Cosie, the first pub the teen and his friends went to at 10:40 pm on Saturday evening, Times of India reported citing Pune police commissioner Amitesh Kumar.

"We have obtained the bill of Rs 48,000 at the pub which the underage driver paid. The bill includes the cost of the liquor served to the teenager and his friends at the pub," Kumar was quoted as saying.

After Cosie stopped serving them, they all left for the second pub -- Blak Mariott -- at 12:10 am.

A CCTV footage of the 17-year-old driver surfaced on the internet, where he was seen seated at a pub's table with his friends. He was reportedly enjoying drinks with them to celebrate his Class 12 results hours before the tragic incident in Pune's Kalyaninagar area.

"We have ample CCTV footage of the boy and his group consuming alcohol. The blood sample reports are awaited," ACJ Manoj Patil said.

Meanwhile, a local court hearing the luxury car accident case on Tuesday remanded three accused in police custody till May 24, and directed the pub and bar operators to decide a limit on how much liquor should be served to their customers as the latter use their own vehicles to drive back home afterwards.

Notably, the Maharashtra excise department sealed the two restaurants, that allegedly served alcohol to the teen, on orders of the Pune district collectorate.


A juvenile court on Wednesday ruled that the 17-year-old, who ran over two motorbike-borne techies, will be tried for drunk driving, NDTV reported.

He will be tried and sentenced under Section 185 of the Motor Vehicle Act. Punishments under this section include a fine of Rs 10,000 or imprisonment of upto 6 months or both.

A case of drunk driving is registered if a breath analyser test finds blood concentration levels of over 30 mg per 100 ml in the vehicle's driver.


The Juvenile Justice Board has issued a notice to the renowned Pune builder's teen son, asking him to appear before it on Wednesday.

This comes after the Pune police approached the board with a plea to review the boy's bail order. Cops had approached a sessions court challenging the bail order and seeking permission to allow them to treat the body as an adult saying the crime committed was "heinous".

However, the court asked the police to approach the Juvenile Justice Board with a petition to review the order.
