Facebook user Saras Wathy complained that an Indian national intentionally “threw” himself on her and rubbed his arm against her chest region in Jurong East MRT station. The incident allegedly happened on 17 March at about 7.10pm. The user’s Facebook profile indicated that she is the wife of a Singaporean pro-wrestler.
Saras said that she was shocked by the incident and took a while to process what had happened to her, and when she did and turned to face the molester, he was walking down in the escalator with a smirk on his face. Saras said that she was angry and upset with herself for not responding immediately.
Other users who responded to Saras’ post expressed outrage and gave tips about how women can avoid such incidents.
One user, Simon Cox, said that many Indian men are display such “extremely bad behavioural trait” and that “women are treated horribly in Indian culture”.
Another user though disagreed with Simon and said how an Indian man came to her rescue when a man from China molested her in the train.
