Sun TV corrects report on Little India riot
Indian Channel Sun TV says it has aired the correct version of the news on the Little India riots on Tuesday night - on its 7pm News bulletin, which is viewed here in Singapore at 9.30pm.
In an email reply to Channel NewsAsia, the Editor in Charge, Mr Umashankar, said the item was aired with the same prominence and duration as the original erroneous news shown on Monday night.
Sun TV News says it is also replying to Singapore's High Commissioner in New Delhi.
On Tuesday, Mr Lim Thuan Kuan had written to Sun TV network regarding its erroneous reporting of Sunday's riot.
Mr Lim said Sun TV had wrongly reported that the Indian national, who died in the traffic accident that triggered the riot, was pushed out of the bus by the driver.
The report also claimed that Singaporeans and Chinese attacked the Indian nationals.
