Though the emergency personnel made every effort to release and revive the cyclist, but he was eventually declared dead. Reportedly, at around 4:30 p.m. on Wednesday night, the collision occurred at the intersection of Yonge Street and St. Clair Avenue.

Our deepest condolences go out to his family, friends, classmates, and teachers.” Furthermore, the remains of Kartik will be sent to India as soon as possible for a befitting burial, according to Kartik’s cousin, who claimed to be speaking from Karnal, Haryana.

The Toronto Police Service’s spokesperson, Constable Laura Brabant, told PTI: “The collision is being looked into. The detectives must first complete a thorough investigation before deciding whether to file charges or not, which adds time to the process. This process requires patience and is not hurried.” (Source: PTI)

Though initially it’s seen as an accident, however, this isn’t for the first time that an Indian student died in Canada. Earlier too such horrifying incidents took place! Kartik Vasudev, a student from Ghaziabad in Uttar Pradesh, age 21, died in April after allegedly being shot at the Glen Road entrance to the Sherbourne TTC station in St. James Town. He was taken to a hospital where he later passed away. Moreover, it’s a matter of concern for those who send their children abroad for studies or living. Every year a lot of students from India move abroad, especially US, UK and Canada for higher studies. However, the Toronto police have been investigating the matter now.
