Three more men have been charged with rioting at Little India on Sunday. This brings to 27 the total number of people charged so far.
SINGAPORE: Three more Indian nationals were charged in court on Wednesday with rioting at Little India on Sunday evening.
This brings the total number of people charged to 27.
Rajendran Ranjan, 22, Moorthy Kabildev, 24 and Sathiyamoorthy Siv Sivaraman, 26, made their first appearance in court Wednesday afternoon.
They are alleged to have smashed a private bus involved in an accident which occurred shortly before the riot.
The trio appeared expressionless as a court interpreter read out their charges in Tamil.
They will be remanded in police custody for a week for further investigations.
The three are part of eight Indian nationals arrested on December 10 in connection with the riot.
Of the remaining five, one is out on bail, while the others have been released as investigations showed they were not involved in the incident.
A representative from the Law Society of Singapore informed the accused of the possibility to seek help through the Criminal Legal Aid Scheme - similar to what was brought up to the first batch of 24 men who were charged on Tuesday.
The case will be mentioned in court again on December 18.
