A construction worker has been jailed for a year after having been found guilty of molesting three teen girls while travelling on the MRT.
Bangladeshi Ray Chandran, 37, was found to have molested the girls while travelling between Yishun and Khatib stations, as he found that the trains along this stretch would be more crowded. On May 11 in the early hours of the morning, Chandran boarded the train at Sembawang station with his first victim. The 17 year old was standing in front of him, looking at her mobile phone. Chandran took this opportunity to molest her. The girl later saw his knuckle touching her private parts over her school uniform.
The girl managed to take his photo as he continued to molest her even after she moved away. Chandran committed the same offence again on July 12, this time on a 13 year old girl also in her school uniform. Both offences were reported to the police. He had also admitted to molesting a 15 year old girl when finally caught by the police
