Chennai-based Sun TV, the biggest television network in South India, reported in its news broadcast on the Little India riot that Singaporeans had attacked the South Indian rioters.

It also said that Indian nationals were hiding in their homes for fear of being harassed by the police or attacked by locals.

The report outraged Singapore netizens, who posted angry comments.

Singapore's High Commissioner for New Delhi, Mr Lim Thuan Kuan, wrote to Sun TV: "The inaccurate and sensational coverage clearly shows that Sun TV did not even bother to check the facts before reporting on the incident."

A police report has been made against the TV station.
