Mumbai: A Pune court on Thursday extended the custody of two doctors of the Sassoon General Hospital and a peon arrested in connection with the sensational blood sample swapping vis-a-vis the minor accused in the Porsche hit and run case.

The accused are Dr Ajay Taware, the head of Forensic Medicine Department, Dr Shrihari Halnor, the casualty medical officer and a peon named Atul Ghatkamble.

The two doctors have been placed under suspension. 

They were produced before a court in Pune which remanded them to police custody till 5 June. 

The police has informed to the court that the blood sample of the minor accused was replaced with that of a woman.
