Two Indians jailed for molestation in Singapore

Singapore, July 6 (IANS) Two Indians in Singapore were on Monday sentenced to prison in two separate cases of molestation.

A court sentenced former gardener Gulcharan Singh, 51, to five months in prison for molesting a 20-year-old student in a lift after stalking her from a bus stop to her housing complex, the Strait Times reported.

Singh pleaded guilty to sexually assaulting the woman on November 25 last year while she was on her way home.

Singh admitted before the judge that he was “very drunk” when he molested the woman around midnight. He was arrested after the woman reported the crime to police.

He could have been jailed for up to two years and fined, the daily said.

Another Indian, a former associate social worker, was jailed for four months on Monday for molesting a homemaker consecutively on two days.

Veerasamy Marimuthu, 53, was found guilty of molesting the 39-year-old woman on January 6 this year. The victim was the beneficiary of a help scheme.

The offence came to light when she reported the incident to a counsellor two days later.

“The accused is a social worker who is supposed to provide aid to the victim, and not to inflict fear and harm,” District Judge Salina Ishak said in the court ruling.
