Two Juvenile Justice Board members are under scrutiny for ‘glaring lapses’ in connection with the bail given to the minor accused in the Pune Porsche crash case. Show cause notices to the officials on Saturday with the Women and Child Development department seeking responses in the next four to five days. The developments came even as a paternal aunt of the accused moved the Bombay High Court over the teenager's ‘illegal’ detention. 

Two IT professionals were killed in Kalyani Nagar here after their motorcycle was hit by a speeding Porsche car allegedly driven by a minor in an inebriated condition. The case caused a national uproar after the Juvenile Justice Board gave bail to the accused on very lenient terms, including writing a 300-word essay on road safety.

“The report has found glaring lapses and mistakes while issuing the bail order by a single member of the JJB on May 19. Though the order granting bail was issued by one member, the other member gave consent the next day. Misconduct and non compliance of norms has been found on the part of the two members and they have been apprised about it,” an official told PTI.

The report also found that there was a haste in issuing the order and violation of certain norms. 

“The police had mentioned section 304 ( culpable homicide not amounting to murder) but it was overlooked while the order was issued by the board members,” the official told PTI.

The committee appointed by the WCD department has already recorded the statement of the two JJB members. The five-member team was had been tasked with investigating the two members appointed by the state government. The Juvenile Justice Board comprises two members appointed by the WCD department and one member from the judiciary.
