Two men were charged in the Sessions Court today for rioting and assaulting Sri Lankan High Commissioner in Malaysia Ibrahim Ansar last Sunday.

Businessman A. Kalaimughilan and taxi driver V. Balamurugan, however, pleaded not guilty to the charge, which was read out to them in Tamil, before Judge Muhamad Faizal Ismail.

The two friends are jointly charged, with four others still at large.

They are charged under Section 147 of the Penal Code and face an imprisonment for up to two years, or fine, or, both, if found guilty.
