The repatriation of 53 migrant workers involved in the Dec 8 riot in Little India has begun.
The men, all Indian nationals except for one Bangladeshi, are being sent home in groups starting yesterday, The Straits Times learnt.
Some of the men have met members of the Committee of Inquiry appointed to look into the cause of the incident and make recommendations.
Panel member John De Payva said that on Wednesday, the committee interviewed 16 of the 53 workers who were being held at the Admiralty West Prison, an immigration depot.
