His lawyer Prashant Patil said a court granted bail to the minor on conditions -- he has to work with traffic police in Yerwada for 15 days, write an essay on accidents, undergo treatment for his drinking habit, studying traffic rules and giving a presentation on same to the Juvenile Justice Board, assisting accident victims in the future, if he witnesses one and take counselling sessions.

Locals caught them. Besides the driver, there were two occupants in the car. One of them escaped. The crowd beat up the other two," said an eyewitness, an auto-rickshaw operator waiting for a ride.
