Melbourne: A day after the arrest of an
Indian suspected in the death of toddler Gurshan Singh Channa,
Australian police today said no further arrest was made in the
high-profile case.

After the arrest of 23-year-old Indian taxi driver
Dhillon Gursewak, who was charged with manslaughter by
criminal negligence over the death yesterday, it was
speculated that another woman was likely to be arrested.

The woman believed to be Gursewak`s wife was expected
to be charged for helping him in disposing of the body.

However, a Victoria Police spokeswoman said: "Definitely not.
The wife has not been arrested or charged."

She said that no further arrests or charges over the
three-year-old boy`s death are expected at this time.

Gursewak, a part-time taxi driver, faced an
out-of-sessions court hearing where it was alleged that he
placed the unconscious child in the boot of his car, before
dumping his body some 20 kms from his house.

No evidence has been heard on how the little boy was
rendered unconscious and an autopsy has failed to determine
the cause of death.

Gursewak lived in the same Lalor house, in northern
Melbourne, as the boy and his parents and several others.
He was denied bail and remanded to custody over the
long weekend and will appear in Melbourne Magistrates` Court
tomorrow.
