A Pune Police source said local MLA Sunil Tingre, whose name has repeatedly come up in connection with the accident from Day 1, received “45 missed calls” from Vishal Agarwal — the father of the juvenile accused — on the night of May 19

Numerous questions have been raised regarding the use of money and political power to influence the outcome of the Pune Porsche accident case. Local MLA Sunil Tingre, whose name has repeatedly come up in connection with the accident from Day 1, received “45 missed calls” from Vishal Agarwal — the father of the juvenile accused — on the night of May 19, a Pune Police source told News18.

Not only have links between local MLA Sunil Tingre and Agarwal surfaced, but it seems the NCP (Ajit Pawar) leader is also connected to Sassoon Hospital’s Dr Ajay Taware, who was arrested for allegedly switching the minor’s blood samples. According to a statement issued by him a day after the accident on May 20, it is already established that Tingre was present at the Yerawada police station till 6 am. He has, however, denied that he tried to put pressure on the police, but now his party has also asked him to provide an explanation in the matter.

A police source told News18 that Tingre received 45 missed calls between 2.30 am and 3.45 am on May 19 night, but they all apparently went unanswered as he was asleep. However, Agarwal later rushed to the MLA’s house to pick him up when failed to answer his calls, the source said.

Tingre’s letter from May 20 also establishes he was there till 6 am, when he said he learnt about the deaths of the two IT professionals and asked the police to take action as per the law. But, it has now come to the fore that he is also connected to one of the arrested doctors from Sassoon hospital.

NCP MLA subvert the investigation

The source further told News18 that it was the MLA who recommended Dr Taware for the top job at the premier medical institution in Pune, despite knowing about his sketchy past. While the Maharashtra government has decided to take strict accident against the hospital employees involved in tampering with the evidence, Dr Taware has claimed that it was Tingre who called him to switch the teenager’s blood samples, the source added.

Top NCP (Ajit Pawar) sources told News18 that Tingre has been asked to clarify his stance before the media. After his name has repeatedly emerged in the case, party sources said he has been asked to provide an explanation about the new evidence. Accordingly, the MLA is likely to hold a press conference in Pune in a day or two.
