Melbourne, Mar.8 (ANI): The father of murdered three-year-old Gurshan Singh Channa says there was no bad blood between him and his son's killer, Gursewak Dhillon.peaking through a translator this afternoon, Harjit Singh Channa said he and his son's accused killer weren't enemies.

"There were no old frictions in the families," the Herald Sun quoted Channa, as saying.

Dhillon appeared in an out-of-sessions court hearing last night charged with manslaughter by criminal negligence.

Police say Gurshan Singh died after being driven around suburban Melbourne in the boot of a car, unconscious, before being left where his body was found.

Dhillon is accused of not checking if the child was still alive and returning to the David St, Lalor, house where he lived with the boy, his parents, and several others.

Detective Senior Sergeant Iddles said Dhillon, a married part-time taxi driver, still had an immigration matter, which was under investigation and had no strong ties to Australia.

"I believe at this stage he is an unacceptable risk" for bail, he said.

Bail justice Ben Czerniewicz said he was running out of options and remanded Dhillon to appear at Melbourne Magistrates' Court tomorrow, saying he agreed with police that he was an nacceptable risk. (ANI)
