A 60-year-old driver was arrested on Thursday in relation to the demise of an Indian foreign student, who died in an accident with a pick-up truck while on his bicycle on November 26 this year.

The driver was charged with careless driving and violating traffic signs and is set to appear in court in February 2023.

Originally hailing from Karnal, Haryana, the student, identified as Kartik Saini, had come to Canada in August last year. Sheridan College has since confirmed that Saini was a student there.

While crossing the road on his bicycle in midtown Toronto, a pickup truck reportedly hit the victim and dragged him. Consequently, Emergency services arrived on the spot in an effort to revive him but failed to do so. The 20-year-old was pronounced dead on the spot.

Kartik’s family has since expressed that they wish his body will be sent back to India for his last rites soon.

A memorial had also since been placed in Kartik’s honour at the site of the accident.
