Toddler may have been hurt before being dumped

Parents of Gurshan Singh Channa have been told by the police that their son may have been hurt by accident before being put in a car boot and dumped near Melbourne Airport, the Herald Sun reported.

“Sources within Melbourne’s Sikh community say family members had been told that the three-year-old could have been unintentionally injured last Thursday,” the report said.
Dhillon Gursewak, the 23-year-old Indian taxi driver, is accused of leaving with Gurshan in a car and driving around for three hours before dumping the toddler.

The nature of the charge - manslaughter by criminal negligence - indicates investigators believe Gurshan may have lived if medical help had been summoned, the report said.
Meanwhile, Australian police said no further arrest has been made in the high-profile case.
After the arrest of Gursewak, it was speculated that another woman was likely to be arrested. The woman believed to be Gursewak’s wife was expected to be charged for helping him in disposing off the body.

Homicide detectives alleged in Sunday night’s court hearing that Dhillon had put Gurshan in the boot unconscious, believing he was still alive.

Harjit Singh Channa, father of the toddler, said he and his son’s “killer” had no frictions between themselves. Harjit’s cousin Deep Singh said they were all shocked Dhillon was charged. Police had said Gurshan Singh died after being driven around suburban Melbourne in the boot of a car, unconscious, before being left where his body was found.
