Chennai, Dec 16 (UNI) Special teams have been formed to trace the minor boy, who was reportedly behind the wheels of a Mercedez Benz car, which killed two persons sleeping on the pavement, on December 13 in the city.

Police sources confirmed formation of special teams, but declined to divulge the places it would visit to trace the boy said to be the son of an industrialist in Triplicane area.

Police also discounted reports that the boy, who was studying in Singapore and had come to the city on vacation, had fled to that country.

''We have already alerted airport officials. There is no chance of the boy fleeing the country,'' the sources said.

It may be recalled that a person, Chandrakanth Sharma, an employee of that company, had surrendered before Egmore Metropolitan Magistrate Court, stating that he was behind the wheels and was released on bail yesterday.

The car had hit a two wheeler rider before climbing on a pavement crushing to death two labourers, who were sleeping, and injuring ten others in the wee hours of December 13.

The car was badly damaged and the driver had fled the scene.

An anonymous fax received at this office had alleged that Achal Khemka, one of the scions of Kehmka family, owner of the prestigious NEPC Group, was driving the car when the accident occurred.
