A local chinese ah beng uncle was filmed attacking an indian man for using his phone on the mrt after he was awaken by his speaking. The incident took place on the East-West Line and was headed towards Chinese Garden MRT Station.
From the video, the indian man was initially standing close to the ah beng uncle but subsequently went away to make his phone call. The ah beng confronted the indian man and accused him of disturbing his sleep. When the man retorted why he was not allowed to use his phone on the MRT, the ah beng got upset and told him to stop speaking on the phone.
When the man attempted to video down the ah beng, he was hit by a rolled up newspaper before the ah beng escaped at the MRT station. It is unclear if the indian man alighted to pursue his racist attacker.
