Melbourne, Mar 6(ANI): Murdered three-year-old Indian boy Gurshan Singh’s father has said that he has no idea what happened to his son.
Gurshan’s body was found near Melbourne Airport on Thursday night, about 30 kilometers from where the toddler disappeared from a house in Lalor six hours earlier.
As the homicide detectives are continuing to investigate his disappearance and death, Harjit Singh Channa said his little boy was a sweet child whose loss had plunged the family into grief.
His parents have also made a statement at the Victoria crime squad”s office about what they knew of the tragic events.
“I don”t know what happened yesterday. My wife was bathing. The other lady in the house she was washing the clothes. She did not hear any sound and thought, ”Where is the baby?”” The Herald Sun quoted Channa, as saying.
Channa spoke lovingly of his little boy, who had been ill before his death.
“My child has gone missing. We are in grief. Very good, my son. Very sweet, my son. He always asked questions, ”What is this? What is this?”” he added.
The last known evidence of Gurshan being alive came from a housemate, who said he was screaming after Channa left the house to visit a nearby library.
Victoria Police Detective Inspector Steve Clark said police had interviewed many witnesses, but were “desperate” to hear from more.
“There”s a range of further forensic tests that need to be conducted and we”re awaiting those results,” Clark said.
Meanwhile, Victorian Premier John Brumby said the best detectives and forensic investigators were working on the case, and that, if needed, Commonwealth resources would be called upon.
Brumby said he had assured the Indian high commissioner and the Indian community that no stone would be left unturned in the murder inquiry.
“Every single police resource will be devoted to this matter until it is resolved,” Brumby said. (ANI)
