SINGAPORE: The Church of Our Lady of Lourdes on Sunday evening held a memorial service for the foreign worker whose death as a result of a traffic accident triggered the Little India riot last week.
Locals and foreigners gathered at the church to pray for the late Mr Sakthivel and his family.
The church, which has strong links with the Indian migrant worker community, also collected a donation from attendees for Mr Sakthivel's family.
"We are saddened at Sakthivel's death at the age of 33," said parish priest Father Augustine Joseph.
He added: "And as you know that he came to work in Singapore to feed his family. Now that he is gone and so this evening's memorial service is for his soul and for the well-being of his family."
