For molesting a 17 year old female student while she was walking home from Novena MRT, Bangladeshi worker Setu Mohammad Ismottoha was jailed for 10 months and given 3 strokes of the cane.
The female student had accidentally hit Setu while outside Velocity shopping centre. Even though she apologised, Setu began stalking her and tried to start a conversation with her. Setu crossed the line when he hugged the girl, squeezed her breasts and started kissing her on the cheek many times. The victim screamed for help and a passerby came to her aid.
The victim’s father called the police later that day and police tracked Setu down and arrested him a few days later. The molester pleaded for leniency in court on account of his ill mother back in Bangladesh.
