A team of representatives from Porsche reached the Yerwada police station on Monday to conduct a technical inspection of the luxury car involved in the crash that killed two persons, an official said.

The electric luxury sports sedan — Porsche Taycan — was allegedly driven by a 17-year-old, who the police claim was drunk at the time of the accident, in which two IT professionals died in the Kalyani Nagar area in the early hours of May 19.

"A team of representatives from Porsche is conducting a technical inspection of the vehicle along with officials from the regional transport office," said Sanjiv Bhor, the regional transport officer.

Maharashtra Transport Commissioner Vivek Bhimanwar had earlier said the car was imported in March by a dealer in Bengaluru, and from there, it was sent to Maharashtra on a temporary registration.

The permanent registration of the vehicle had been pending since March due to the non-payment of Rs 1,758 fees by the owner, transport officials had said.

The teenager involved in the crash was initially granted bail by the Juvenile Justice Board, which also asked him to write an essay on road accidents, but following outrage over the lenient treatment and a review application by the police, he was sent to an observation home till June 5.

The police have arrested the teenager's father, who is a realtor, and his grandfather in connection with the accident.
