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.
