Eight Bangladeshi workers have been cleared of rioting in a dormitory after a fight with another group - which is thought to have erupted over the result of a cricket match, reports The Straits Times.

The eight, aged 26 to 38, were given a discharge amounting to an acquittal yesterday (Tuesday) for being part of the assembly with six others to cause hurt to three Indian nationals at the Homestay Residence Dormitory.

The two groups were among 35 foreign workers who were arrested after a mass brawl broke out on March 25 at the dormitory in Kaki Bukit Avenue 3.

Police had earlier said in a statement that the fight took place during the screening of a live cricket match, understood to have been between Bangladesh and the West Indies.
