Arrest made in death of Indian student in Canada

Police in Canada have arrested an Indo-Canadian man on charges of manslaughter in connection with the death of a 19-year-old Indian student, Harmanjit Singh.



Toronto: Police in Canada have arrested an Indo-Canadian man on charges of manslaughter in connection with the death of a 19-year-old Indian student, Harmanjit Singh.

Dashminder Deol, 37, has been arrested and charged with manslaughter and offering an indignity to human remains, Canadian CBC reported Thursday.

Singh`s decomposed body was found floating on a flood basin in Stoney Creek, a community in the Canadian province of Ontario, in November last year.

Joe Stewart of the homicide unit of Hamilton police did not reveal how Singh died, saying that it would come out in the court system. "But I do not believe there was an intent to kill Singh in this incident," he said.

On Oct 27, Singh disappeared after spending time at a friend`s home on the East Mountain the night before. Police subsequently searched the home as part of the investigation.

Singh and Deol were "friends for some time". Deol was also known to police prior to this incident, Stewart said, but did not disclose any charges Deol was facing.

Singh was a Mohawk College graduate in Ontario, Canada. His family lives in India, and his father and other family members flew in to locate him after his friends reported him missing late last year.

Family members saw the body after an autopsy, but could not recognise it because of its highly decomposed state.
