Singapore: Charges against three Indians for involvement in Singapore's worst riot in 40 years were withdrawn today while seven of their remaining 25 compatriots were released on bail.


Karuppiah Thirunavukkarasu, Ganesan Ashokkumar and Anbarasan Vel Murugan were acquitted of their charges by Subordinate Courts in the December 8 riot in Little India.  

This brings the total number of alleged rioters who had their charges dropped to 10.

Seven Indians were released on December 17 after the prosecution dropped their charges.  

The three men would soon be released, the Channel News Asia reported.

The move came three days after 56 Indians and a Bangladeshi were deported from Singapore for alleged involvement in the riot in Little India, a precinct of Indian-origin businesses, eateries and pubs where most South Asian workers take their Sunday break.
