Bose Prabakar was accsued of assaulting a police officer.

Mr. Arun who was on a tourist visa (aka Social Visit Pass) in Singapore was putting up at his friend’s place at Chander Road which is in the Little India vicinity when the riot broke out at Race Course Road.
According to an interview with TOC, Arun left the area when the scene was getting rowdy and was on his way to Rowell Road to have dinner where he was picked up later that evening  together with ten others by police officers.
“It is a total injustice done to me,” he told the media. “I deserve justice and dignity and I have to be treated just like any other tourists who come to Singapore.”
Arun was the first of the twenty-eight to be charged. He is now out on bail which is set at $20,000.
His case will be heard again on 30 December.
