A 16-year-old girl was among eight people charged in court with the murder of a man in Tiong Bahru Park.
S. Durga is believed to have been part of a group which attacked Mr Goh Ho Leong, 52, with broken bottles.
Mr Goh was unconscious when police found him in the park on Tuesday night, with injuries all over his body.
He was taken to Singapore General Hospital where he died two days later.
Mr Goh’s younger brother told local media that his older brother, who had been unemployed for about two years, received a call at around 9pm on Tuesday, before leaving his home.
The call was reportedly from a man who offered him a job as a security guard. Mr Goh took along his mobile phone and house keys, but not his wallet.
At about 1am, Mr Goh’s family received a call from the police, informing them that he had been injured and was being taken to the hospital after being found lying at the park near his Redhill home.
According to reports, the other seven accused are: Mansur Alikhan, 19, Abdul Samad Mohamed Kasim, 22, and S Karthikesu, Mohamed Fazuluddin Azeedali, Muhizin Khan, Segu Jamaldeen Nafil Mohamed and Anandraj Manimaran, all 18.
Full-time national serviceman Mohamed Ayub Jailabdeen, 27, appeared in court on Thursday with a rioting charge. His charge is expected to be upgraded to murder when the case comes up for mention on Thursday.
The other eight will be remanded until that day for further investigations. They will receive the death penalty if convicted.
