Ravi Sandhira Sagaran, 28, an Indian-origin man, has been sentenced to seven years in prison and ordered to be given 12 strokes of cane for robbing a money-changer in Singapore.
Sagaran pleaded guilty of robbing Ali Yousouf Saiboo, 35, of 6,24,036 Singapore Dollars and foreign currencies on November 5, 2014.
A second charge was also taken into consideration for conspiring with several men, including Tachana Moorthy Peromal, aged 29 and Annadurai Raman, aged 43, to steal a car from a parking lot. According to the report, Tachana and Annadurai would go on trial next month.
Sagaran was arrested in November 2014 but the money is yet to be recovered.
