Indian Origin Man sent to Singapore Prison

Indian Man in Singapore Jail for Molestation

In Singapore, Singaram Palianeapan, a 61-year-old Indian-origin man, has been sentenced to 10 months in jail for two separate offenses. He pleaded guilty to using criminal force to outrage the modesty of a person and voluntarily causing hurt with a dangerous weapon.

The first incident involved Singaram molesting a domestic worker in a lift. He had offered her S$2 to buy a drink, and after accepting the money, the victim found herself alone with him in the lift. She managed to escape and reported the incident to her employer, leading to a police report.

Indian Origin Man Sent

A month later, Singaram confronted a bicycle shop owner over issues with a personal mobility device he had purchased. A dispute ensued, and when a friend of the owner, attempted to intervene, Singaram used a metal chain from his mobility vehicle, wrapped it around his fist, and punched him three times in the face. He was subsequently rushed to the hospital.

Singaram’s actions resulted in charges of using criminal force and causing hurt with a dangerous weapon. The sentencing reflects the severity of such offenses, with those voluntarily causing hurt with a dangerous weapon facing potential imprisonment of up to seven years, fines, caning, or a combination of these penalties.

The incidents highlight the importance of swift legal action to address assault and molestation cases, promoting safety and discouraging such behaviour in the community.
