ABC News has a slightly different take on the story, with the defence lawyer emphasising poor Puneet's medical worries:

I have no issue with him dying in gaol. An Australian gaol.

Well, we can send a plane specially fitted out with all the medical equipment to bring him back, and here he shall receive top medical treatment, and as a bonus, experience our legal system.

I would like the bloke to get a real break. Some where between the shoulders and the ears seems about right.

His lawyer said the now 27-year-old Puneet had acknowledged that his actions were "negligent", but said they were not "deliberate".

Nothing wrong with him. As so the story continues. He says he doesn't want to come back to Australia as Aussies are racist. That is the first thing he has got right. As an Aussie I cannot tolerate idiots , no matter where you are from. I'm sure an Indian hospital will cure him.

If he'd stayed and faced the music at the time, he would have gotten fines for drink driving and speeding and probably would have already completed any jail sentence (if any) for killing someone. They might have even tried to deport him back to where he is now but ironically, I'm guessing he would have fought deportation to stay here.

Staging yet another appeal in Delhi against extradition. The hearing is set for sept 5. On the plus side there is no mention of being prevented from travel on medical grounds .... so at least that part of his shenanigans seems to be no longer in play.

this is good news. it seems to suggest his lawyers are relying on legal arguments to prevent extradition, rather than what I would worry more about - palm greasing.

Ooooh, poor puneet.

I feel for him, I really do. NOT.

Be a man and face justice. It'll be much fairer here than anywhere else.

If the majority of Australians over the past 10 years have any problem with Indians maybe this dishonourable coward should look to himself as the cause.

Nah....it's the way they always call me mate at the quickymart. Did I go to school with you???? No? Then I'm not your mate. There's a lot to be said for American hospitality manners.

Will it? Given our pathetic legal system, he'll get off with little or no punishment, and the victim's family will suffer for the rest of their lives.

I can't believe he thinks we are racist... I have many colleagues and friends who are Indian, they are all wonderful - gracious and down to earth.

Anyone would think this guy is trying to avoid facing justice...

Let's prove to him how generous we are and send a specially equipped medical evacuation jet (which we do have) and see that he gets the absolute best of medical care for his treatment on the flight and here when he is in Australia. And then he can also face justice!

The comments in the Herald Sun today make me angry. Not that they universally brand Puneet Punnet a coward form playing the 'race' card and that he should face the legal system here.

But that if Puneet Puneet had hit and killed a cyclist, he would have been almost applauded by the ferals with renewed calls for cyclists to pay rego and that it's our own fault if we get hit by motorists and all sorts of thinly veiled threats and derogatory comments. The same people who condemn Puneet Puneet for his actions are guilty of the same thing against cyclists.

I've been following this whole sorry saga since he absconded, including reports from Indian news sources. And even they and the general populace (which I assume is Puneets intended audience) do not seem interested in Puneet's constant theme of racism. And I am unaware of any noticeable interference from local politicians either.

While I have mostly looked at english language news, I have, on occasion, also used Google Translation with similar results. India is not as tribal and jingoistic as we may think. Certainly in this case they do not appear to be so.

I've traveled to India and they are very hospitable. They have their problems but they would understand Puneet is just dodging jail.

Poor chap "He's in bad shape" now confined to a wheelchair, for no explained reason, wears a surgical mask for some unstated illness, has liver problems and schizophrenia.

All he wants is for it all to be over so he can spend time at home - you know unlike his victim Dean Hofstee.

To think it could all have been over if he had not fled the country. Still if he is that worried about Australian gaols, personally I would be satisfied if he served his sentence in an Indian gaol.

He will get much better health care in an Australian prison

I'm betting that when [if] he is convicted in Australia, he will get a much bigger sentence for escaping the country than he will for the death

Schizophrenia? Still? I thought ended once he got out of Australia and could resume his real identity?

"Schizophrenia is a mental disorder characterized by abnormal social behavior and failure to understand what is real. Common symptoms include false beliefs, unclear or confused thinking, ... reduced social engagement and emotional expression ..."

[sarcasm] Sounds about right - Puneet behaviour in driving at a speed & in a manner dangerous, was abnormal, he falsely believes that he is being unfairly treated just because he recklessly killed someone, falsely believes he needs a wheelchair. He is apparently unable to express any empathy for his victims nor even any acknowledgment that he was at fault.[/sarcasm]

And the Indian legal system limps on with no decision as Puneet continues to fight extradition to Australia. In good news he is now well enough to abandon the wheelchair
