On 26th March, The Online Citizen reporter Terry Xu wrote:
"On Wednesday, just after the gun carriage procession of Mr Lee's body, I was pulled to the side in Dhouby Ghaut MRT station by two plain clothes policemen saying that SMRT has reported that people were carrying bulky items in the station.
And I was detained for about twenty minutes odd as I had to wait for two officers from Tanglin Police Station to do a search of my camera bag and to record my NRIC.
Have written to the police and SMRT to clear up the doubts I have over the incident before I write in full what happened.
Writing it here so that "people" know that I'm not kidding about writing on the incident with the CID and please reply clearly what I asked for."
When the Singapore Police Force did not respond to his questions, Terry Xu filed a police report today:
"A police report has been made as the police is still unable to confirm with me if the people who approached me on Wednesday last week were indeed police officers.
