Chennai, Dec 15 (UNI) The person, reportedly behind the wheels of a Mercedez Benz car which fatally ran over two people sleeping on a pavement here two days ago, has surrendered before a court.
The person, Chandrakanth, surrendered before a Egmore Metropolitan Magistrate court last evening.
He was released on bail this evening.
Police are on the look out for another person, who had travelled in the car, and was absconding.
