Singapore: Three Indians were among 25 foreigners who were sentenced up to four weeks in prison by a Singaporean Court for submitting forged documents in order to obtain work permits.

The city state's Manpower Ministry said that all of them submitted forged academic certificates to apply for work passes, as they did not possess required university degree.

All 25 accused pleaded guilty to the charges in a court on Tuesday. 20 of them were sentenced to four weeks' of imprisonment. The other five were unable to pay 5,000 Singaporean dollars fine and thus will be serving 20 days of jail term instead, the ministry said.

The group includes few chefs, a hairstylist and a dance choreographer. The group comprising 20 males and five females, includes 21 from Myanmar, three from India and one from the Philippines.
