Grief stricken parents of three-year-old Gurshan Singh Channa, who was killed in Australia, brought his body to the country for last rites.

Teary-eyed Harjit Singh Channa, the toddler’s father and his wife Harpreet Kaur Channa were comforted by relatives at the airport here after they arrived on a Thai Airways flight from Melbourne along with the body, airport official said.

Gurshan went missing from his home in Melbourne on March 4 and his body was later found dumped its northern suburbs.

Singh said he got all support and assistance from the Australian police and the government.

“The body would be taken to Faridkot in Punjab and the last rites are likely to take place on Monday,” a relative of Channa family said.

Gursewak Dhillon, 23, a resident of the Lalor home where the boy and his parents were also staying, has been charged with manslaughter by criminal negligence over the child’s death. He claims that he accidentally knocked the boy down before dumping him 20 kms away from his residence.
