Facebook user Uma Mageswari shared a picture and a video of an incident which happened as she was travelling form Outram MRT station to Harbourfront on 13 May at about 7.40pm. Uma said, an Indian national on Employment Pass immediately plonked himself on the seat opposite Uma and discreetly started filming her.

But unknown to the foreign national, who Uma identified as Suraj, the window behind his seat revealed that he was filming the woman. The woman did some recording of her own before confronting him.

When confronted the man apologised and said that she was like his sister. But that did not stop her from calling the MRT staff and Police to her assistance. Uma claimed that the man had other video clips of unsuspecting women in his phone, and that some of them were obscene.

Just in case you are not able to see Uma’s post, this is what she wrote.

This is a video that I had recorded on 13th May 2017 Saturday at 7.40pm a minute or so after I had boarded the train at Outram mrt. I was heading towards Harbourfront to meet a friend. This guy quickly plonked himself on the seat opposite mine though it wasn’t as if the train was crowded and he had to race to get a seat. I was seated in the 2-seater located at the far ends of the carriage. He then proceeded to whip out his phone and I think the rest speaks for itself once you view the video.

The dumbass didn’t realise his folly obviously. I made my own recording of him but understandably lost my temper afterwards when confronting him over his actions. The mrt staff were most helpful and the SPF arrived at the scene within minutes. Upon further investigation this chap was found to be in possession of similar videos though I am told they were rather obscene in nature of unsuspecting victims.

This man’s name is Suraj. This asshole holds an employment pass. He had a range of excuses for his deplorable actions. His last feeble attempt of an apology was that ‘I was like his sister’.

I am highlighting this episode to the public in general to serve as a deterrent for other such assholes. Please always remain aware of your surroundings and never be afraid to speak out against such acts that may be committed against you or others around you.

You don’t have to be a victim of your circumstances. Ever.
