SOME 10 rioters had attempted to overturn the private bus that had earlier run over an Indian national, a foreign worker who was at the scene that night told the Committee of Inquiry.
Construction worker Kannadasan Murugan, 34, was at Little India with friends on that night when he heard that the accident had happened, and that a rowdy crowd had gathered.
He later witnessed some members in the crowd attempting to overturn the private bus.
“I saw about 10 people trying to lift the bus,” he said through a translator. “But they couldn’t lift the bus, so they set it down.”
From the second floor of Tekka Market, where he had gone to get a better view as events unfolded, Kannadesan said he saw police vehicles on fire.
An ambulance on fire subsequently exploded, while about 20 to 30 of those in the roughly 200-strong crowd were throwing projectiles. — The Straits Times/Asia News Network
