In the midst of nationwide anger over a teenager driving a Porsche and running over two tech professionals in Pune, a comparable incident has emerged in Kanpur, Uttar Pradesh. Here, a 15-year-old boy struck four individuals with his vehicle on Tuesday. This teenager, previously accused of reckless driving resulting in two fatalities last October, was apprehended and placed in a juvenile detention center the day after the Kanpur incident occurred in Barra.

As per reports, the teenage suspect is the son of a well-known doctor in Kanpur. He was remanded to a juvenile facility, and legal proceedings resumed regarding the six-month-old case. Additionally, his father has been charged in connection with both accidents.

Law enforcement stated that on Tuesday, the teenager was operating a vehicle when he collided with four individuals, causing them injuries. The injured received initial medical attention, while the 15-year-old was charged under IPC sections 279 and 338 for reckless driving.
