Kumar has been charged by Victoria Police for causing the death of 19-year-old Dean Hofstee and seriously injuring 20-year-old Clancy Coker in a road accident on October, 2008. Both victims were students from Queensland.
Police then said alcohol levels in Kumar's blood showed he was inebriated at the time of the mishap.
On December 12, Kumar was produced before a court in Punjab's Rajpura District, where he said he wanted the trial to continue in India as his life was under threat in Australia.
After being arrested in India, following a widespread manhunt by the Victorian and Indian police, Interpol plans to push for his extradition to Australia in the Delhi court, according to a police statement.
Puneet was arrested on November 29,2013 after a five-year-long manhunt.
Puneet had gone to Australia to study hospitality. He fled the country on June, 2009 using a friend's passport after he was found guilty of negligent driving, local media reported.
