The bail granted to Pune teenager who rammed two IT professionals, has been cancelled by the Juvenile Justice Board. Wednesday’s decision comes three days after the Board had granted bail to the 17-year-old and asked him to write an essay on road accidents, prompting nationwide outrage.

The Juvenile Justice Board has sent the juvenile to a remand home till June 5. It did not, however, give a decision on whether he should be tried as an adult. 

It is reported that after the accident in the early hours of Sunday, the teenager, who is the son of a prominent Pune realtor, had been granted bail within 15 hours.  Apart from a personal bond, a surety and a 300-word essay on road safety, he was asked to visit the regional transport office, study all rules and regulations, and give a presentation. 

The accused was also asked to undergo de-addiction counselling for alcohol consumption and consult psychiatrists.
