Here is the full statement by the Bangladesh High Commissioner in Singapore:
Our attention has been drawn to an incident that happened at Little India between Race Course and Hampshire Road on 8th December, 2013 around 9.30pm.
In some press and media reports there has been unsubstantiated news reporting which says that a Bangladeshi worker was hit by a bus that escalated the riot incident.
I want to categorically state that as per available information the news reports that appeared on a section of media and news involving a Bangladeshi worker is not based on facts.
I would request the Bangladesh Community to exercise utmost calm and restraint and fully cooperate with the law enforcement agencies. We are pledge and duty bound to help the authorities to maintain rule of law, order and discipline in the society and community.
This is necessary to maintain overall law and order and also to ensure that the law enforcement agencies can carry out their duties and responsibilities.
We would also like to take this opportunity to extend our hands of cooperation and assistance to the government and relevant agencies.
