New Delhi: If you want justice then give half, but if there is any hindrance in this too then give only five grams, keep all your land… These lines from Ramdhari Singh ‘Dinkar’s poem ‘Krishna’s Warning’ fit perfectly in the case of ‘Pune Luxury Car Accident’. A lot has changed from the Mahabharata period to the Kaliyuga period. But history is witness to the fact that the ‘justice system’ remains as it is. Even today he has control over justice and his stick has power. It does not matter whether the accused kills one or thousands. In fact, for the last 24 hours, the unique punishment given to the accused is being discussed across the country in the name of ‘justice’.

A 17-year-old minor, who was driving a high-speed Porsche car in Pune last Saturday night, got bail within 15 hours in a road accident case. This accident happened in Koregaon Park area in the early hours of Sunday, in which a couple riding on a two-wheeler died. The accused minor trampled two people after drinking alcohol, but due to his influence the chains of the law became loose. It is not yet clear what happened during the bail hearing, but the police say that the court did not find the incident so serious that bail should not be granted. Within 15 hours of the minor being taken into custody, the court granted him bail, but imposed certain conditions for his release such as – Will have to work with the traffic police for 15 days’, ‘Will have to undergo mental evaluation and treatment’, ‘Will have to write a 300-word essay on the impact of road accidents and their solutions’, ‘Will have to go to a de-addiction center and get rehabilitation’, ‘They have to read the traffic rules and give a presentation on these rules in front of the Juvenile Justice Board’, ‘If they see any road accident in future, they have to help the victims.’

Two people lost their lives and a discussion has started among the intellectual class regarding the moral wisdom-like punishment given by the court. However, the lower court’s decision can be challenged in higher courts. But the thread of ‘justice’ which has been woven with light rules is bound to be discussed. A minor who is still a little away from puberty. He brutally destroyed the world of two people by drinking alcohol, what punishment should he get? You, I and the people of the justice system know the answer to this very well. But what is the compulsion that an attempt is being made to hide the death of a human being with an essay of 300 words? However, the police seems to be struggling with the system. Police Commissioner Amitesh Kumar said that action has also been taken against the minor’s father for allowing the numberless car to be driven. He said that the Assistant Commissioner of Police is investigating the matter. Statements of eyewitnesses have also been recorded, in which it was told that when people caught the minor and his friends after the incident, they were drunk.

What is the matter?

According to the police, on Saturday night the minor son of a real estate agent was returning in his Porsche car after partying with friends. Eyewitnesses told the police that his Porsche car was traveling at a speed of more than 200 kilometers per hour. There was not even a number plate on the car. At that time, two engineers Anish Awadiya and Ashwini Koshta, residents of Madhya Pradesh, were also returning by bike. The speeding car hit Ashwini’s bike hard. As soon as the collision occurred, Ashwini jumped about 20 feet in the air and then fell on the ground. His friend Aneesh also fell on the car. Both of them died on the spot due to serious injuries. Ashwini and Aneesh were engineers and worked in a company in Pune.

What is the law for minor accused?

Many courts of the country, including the Supreme Court, have made it clear that even if the accused is a minor aged 16 to 18 years, if he is involved in heinous crimes like murder and rape, he will be tried as an adult. The court has even said that such accused can be given death penalty or life imprisonment. Not only this, in heinous crimes the accused can be kept in a special home only till the age of 16 years. After this he is shifted to jail along with other prisoners. At the same time, no case can be registered against children below 12 years of age.

What does the Motor Vehicles Act say?

According to the current law, if someone dies in a road accident, the police investigate and register a case under two sections. In this one section is 304 and the other is 304A. It depends on the investigating officer under which section the case will be registered against the accused. There is a lot of difference in the punishment of both the sections. Section 304 provides for a punishment of only two years, while Section 304A provides for a punishment of 10 years. However, changes have been made to the road accident law in the new Indian Civil Code (BNS) 2023 law of the Central Government. Under this new law, if someone dies in a road accident and the driver runs away from the spot, he can be sentenced to 10 years of imprisonment. Not only this, a fine of Rs 7 lakh can also be imposed on the accused driver. There was opposition to this new law.
