Grieving father of the Indian toddler, Gurshan Singh Channa, has sought hard sentencing for his housemate Gursewak Dhillon, who admitted placing the unconscious three-year-old boy in the car boot and then dumping him on the roadside.
"I want law to punish him as he is responsible for my son's death," Harjit Singh Channa said.
Speaking to PTI, Channa said Gursewak had confessed in front of him that he was involved in putting the child in the boot of his car.
"I met Gursewak along with the police and he told me on my face that he had done it," a visibly upset and tired Channa said.
"I have lost my child and I wont be able to get him back," he said, adding "I want the accused to serve hard sentence for what he has done to my family for no reason."
23-year-old Dhillon admitted that the boy was accidentally knocked unconscious on Thursday at the house in David Street, Lalor, where he had been staying with the toddler's family.
Dhillon said he panicked and put the unconscious boy in the boot of a car, drove for about three hours and dumped the body 20 kilometres away in Oaklands Junction without checking if the three-year-old was alive.
