The Bombay High Court has raised questions regarding the legal basis for a juvenile's confinement in the controversial Pune Porsche case. Initially granted bail, the 17-year-old was later remanded to an observation home after the bail order was amended, a move that has been criticized by the court.

A division bench consisting of Justices Bharati Dangre and Manjusha Deshpande questioned the police on the legal provisions that allowed the amendment of the bail order, which resulted in the juvenile being taken into custody. They pointed out the lack of an application for cancellation of bail as a procedural anomaly.

The tragic accident on May 19 led to the death of two software engineers, and the juvenile's bail amendment has prompted widespread public and legal scrutiny. The court reserved its order on the habeas corpus plea and is set to make a decision on June 25.
