An Indian man on Tuesday was awarded 18 weeks’ jail term for his involvement in the December 08, 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.
