SINGAPORE: Singapore's High Commissioner to India has written to Sun TV Network regarding its erroneous reporting of Sunday's riot in Little India.
High Commissioner Lim Thuan Kuan said Sun TV had erroneously reported that the Indian national, who died in the traffic accident that triggered the riot, was pushed out of the bus by the driver.
The report had also claimed that Singaporeans and Chinese attacked the Indian nationals.
Mr Lim stressed these incidents did not take place.
He said that based on eyewitness and video evidence, the Indian national had boarded the bus when it was already full.
The victim also appeared drunk and he was causing trouble on the bus, even dropping his trousers.
Mr Lim added that after the Indian national was assisted off the bus, he proceeded to move alongside the bus in an unsteady manner.
He then stumbled and fell onto the path of the back wheel of the bus and was run over.
The High Commissioner has requested Sun TV to correct its report both online and broadcast
