Indian national Gursewak Dhillon, accused in the death of three-year-old Gurshan Singh Channa, on Tuesday pleaded guilty in a court in Melbourne.

23-year-old Dhillon, who was living with the toddler and his parents pleaded guilty in the Melbourne Magistrates'
court, according to a report in the Herald Sun.

Standing before magistrate Peter Reardon, Dhillon said, "I'm guilty, your honour", in response to a charge of
manslaughter. Dhillon has been charged with manslaughter by criminal negligence.

The toddler went missing on March 4 this year when his mother was taking shower at their Lalor home. His body was
found by a council worker near Melbourne Airport, six hours after he disappeared.

According to police, Dhillon had put the unconscious Channa in the boot of a car and drove around for three hours
and he then dumped him on the side of a road without checking if he was alive.
