Several hours ago, Victorian police charged one Gursewak Dhillon with manslaughter by criminal negligence over the death of three-year old Gurshan Singh. Dhillon lived at the same address as Singh. Details are still somewhat sketchy but according to police, Dhillon placed the unconscious child in the boot of his car and drove around for at least three hours before dumping the child's body in long grass where it was later discovered. Exactly what Dhillon was trying to do and how Singh came to be unconcious are still unclear.
Dhillon appears to have taken his court appearance rather calmly going by the news reports I have seen. One would have thought that an innocent man would have been protesting vigorously even though his appearance at an out-of-hours court session was merely a bail hearing, with bail being refused.
One would hope that this swift result will put paid to any potential beat ups about racial attacks in this case.
The burning question in my mind at this point, is what on earth Dhillon was doing?
