Two persons were killed when a speeding luxury car driven by a juvenile hit their motorcycle in Maharashtra's Pune city on Sunday, police said, reported news agency PTI.


The accident took place at around 3.15 am in Kalyani Nagar and a case was registered against the 17-year-old car driver under relevant provisions, they said, reported PTI.


A group of friends after a party at a restaurant in Kalyani Nagar was returning home on their motorbikes.


When they arrived at the Kalyani Nagar junction, a speeding luxury car hit one of the motorcycles following which its two riders fell from the vehicle and died on the spot, as per the FIR, reported PTI.

After knocking down the duo, the car crashed into the roadside pavement railings, it said.

A video surfaced on social media wherein a group of people was seen thrashing the driver as he tried to come out of the crashed ca, reported PTI.

The deceased have been identified as Anis Awadhiya and Ashwini Costa, as per the FIR, reported PTI.

A case was registered against the car driver at the Yerawada police station under various Indian Penal Code sections, including 279 ('rash driving or riding on a public way), 304A (causing death of any person by doing any rash or negligent act not amounting to culpable homicide), 337 (causing hurt to any person by doing any act so rashly or negligently as to endanger human life or personal safety of others) and 338 (causing grievous hurt by act endangering life or personal safety of others), and provisions of the Motor Vehicles Act.

In another incident, police have arrested a 22-year-old woman for allegedly killing her husband with an axe while he was asleep at home in Wada taluka of Maharashtra's Palghar district, an official said on Saturday, reported PTI.

The incident occurred on May 8 and the victim was identified as 26-year-old Ajay Raghunath Bochal, they said.

"After the body was found, his wife Anita told the police that the victim was attacked by some unidentified person during the intervening night. The police registered a case of murder and formed teams to nab the suspects," inspector Datta Kindre of the Wada police station said, reported PTI.

As the crime had taken place in the house when all the family members were present in the house, it was very difficult to find the real accused. The police probed if the victim had any love affair, he said.

"The police extensively interrogated all the family members and came to know that the victim used to doubt his wife's character and target her by linking her to another man. This annoyed her wife and she eventually attacked her husband with an axe in the middle of the night," he added, reported PTI.

After her interrogation, the police arrested her and produced her before a magistrate, who remanded her into police custody, the official said.
