[SINGAPORE] Charges have been dropped against seven Indian nationals for their alleged roles in the Dec 8 riot in Little India because of insufficient evidence.

This is after the prosecution applied to the court for the seven charges to be withdrawn, after the police's further review of the facts and circumstances of the case.

Deputy Public Prosecutor John Lu told the court yesterday that the police were withdrawing the charges against the seven men as District Judge Lim Tse Haw had ruled a "discharge amounting to acquittal".
