Singapore: A Singapore court on Friday sentenced a 45-year-old Indian-origin man to two years in jail for molesting a 13-year-old boy.

The court heard that Subramaniam invited the boy and his 14-year-old cousin and committed the act.

The boy said that he tried to move away but failed to do so.

Deputy public prosecutor Norman Yew had sought a 24-month jail term for the convict as he was recalcitrant and showed no remorse for the crime.
