Police have arrested and charged an Indian-born medical student with manslaughter by negligence and other charges after he and 2 of his fellow medical students were involved in a fatal accident.

The incident, which occurred on Saturday, August 4th just outside of San Narciso Village in Corozal District on the Northern Highway, involved 3 Indian-born medical students who reside in the Los Lagos subdivision of Ladyville in the Belize District. The driver was 19-year-old Prandeep Kumar Saikai; the front-seat passenger, 21-year-old Jayandra Jahhar and 18-year-old Sagar Sharma.

Saikai, it is believed, was suspected of being under the influence of alcohol and behind the wheel of his personal Isuzu Rodeo vehicle, when he lost control of the vehicle, causing it to flip over, running off the road before finally ‘landing’ in a cane field. Jahhar, who wasn’t protected by a seatbelt, was flung out of the vehicle in the chaos, suffering severe head and body injuries and dying where he lay in a nearby cane field, while driver Saikai and fellow passenger Sharma only had minor injuries.

Saikai was hit with these charges, namely: 1) Manslaughter by Negligence, (2) Causing death by careless conduct; (3) Driving motor vehicle with alcohol concentration above the prescribed limit, and (4) Driving motor vehicle without due care and attention. He is expected by to be arraigned before the courts soon.
