TORONTO: A 37-year-old Indo-Canadian man has been arrested for allegedly killing his Indian friend in late last year.

Dashminder Deol, a friend of 19-year-old Harmanjit Singh has been arrested and charged with manslaughter and offering an indignity to human remains.

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.

"I do not believe there was an intent to kill Singh in this incident," Canadian CBC quoted Joe Stewart of the homicide unit as saying.

Singh disappeared on October 27 after spending time at a friend's home on the east Mountain the night before.

"Singh and Deol were friends for some time. Doel was also known to police prior to this incident," Stewart said.

Singh's body lay in a water basin for weeks, decaying so much that his own family couldn't even recognise him.

"That's very indignant for a human being," Stewart said.

Most of Singh's family lives in India. His father and several other family members flew in to help locate him after friends reported him missing late last year.

Family members had viewed the body after an autopsy, but didn't think it was Singh, who went missing in October.

Police announced it was in fact his body in December.
