Singapore:  An Indian man on Tuesday was awarded 18 weeks' jail term for his involvement in the Dec 8, 2013, riots in the city.

Ravi Arun Vengatesh, 25, a quality control supervisor, became the 19th Indian to be convicted for the riots, the Straits Times reported.


Vengatesh was convicted of obstructing a police officer who was trying to control last year's Little India riot.

He admitted obstructing acting inspector Thinagaran S. Krishnasamy near a lane at Chander Road.

The riots erupted after an Indian, Sakthivel Kumaravel, was run over by a bus.

This was the worst outbreak of violence in the country in over four decades.
