A 27-year-old grassroots leader on his way to work was killed on Tuesday when a refrigerated truck knocked him down at a road junction in Clementi.

The body of Mr Sivaprakash Pathmanathan, a part-time telemarketer, was caught in the wheels of the truck and dragged for several metres.

Rescue tools were used to extricate his body from the rear wheels of the truck, the Singapore Civil Defence Force said on Wednesday.

Two other people were also injured in the 6.30pm accident at the junction of Clementi Avenue 6 and Clementi Loop, and have been hospitalised.
