Riot in Little India

Picture from InSing

Was woken up to WA messages last night about a riot in Little India, Singapore and my parents were rambling about it this morning. For their generation, rioting is a very common thing and scary too. Although, it has been about 40 years since a riot happened, I think we should all be careful and more vigilant even in a reputable safe haven like Singapore. 

The cause :

A bus knocked down a man and the people near the incident were provoked into a riot.

It is rumored last night that the man who was knocked down and pinned under the car was an Indian National which have just been confirmed by the Government.

18 injured, including 10 police officers, as mob attacks rescuers trying to retrieve body from under bus following traffic accident. (

Quick Summary from
