Man secretly films woman passenger in metro, gets caught


An Indian woman in Singapore has exposed a man, who was trying to make video of her in an underground train. Uma Mageswar came up with a creative idea to make a video of the man, who was secretly trying to film her.

She later posted the video on Facebook, where it has gone viral. Close to six million people have already watched the video with it being shared thousands of times.

Mageswar 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 man in the video pretended as if he was doing something meaningful on his mobile, but the reflection in the glass window of the metro clearly showed that visuals he was trying to film.

Mageswar wrote, “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. (sic)”

The accused has been identified as Suraj, who later apologised for his act and reportedly even addressed Mageswar as his sister.

“This as***le 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,” concluded Mageswar in her post.
