Four Indian nationals were charged on Thursday by a Singapore court with the murder of a compatriot on New Year Day. Ramasami Rabinhood (25), Bose Muruganandham (32), Raja Arul (22) and Palanisamy Vijayakumar (26) were part of a group accused of murdering 24-year-old Boobalan Palanikumar.
According to local media reports, they were drinking in Jurong Lake Park on the western industrial region of Singapore on New Year's Day, near the place where the incident took place. Palanikumar was one of the few men found injured at the scene. He died in a local hospital the next day.
Police said they received a call at 1am on Tuesday about a fight in the park. All four were in remand at Central Police Division for investigations. They will appear in court again on January 10, the Straits Times reported.
