Now, this is something you don’t hear every day!
A woman that was asleep on a Singapore Airlines flight (SIA) was molested, but here’s the odd part, when she confronted the molester, his excuse was that he “didn’t know the laws of Singapore”. Really, bruh?
The 31-year-old woman was onboard a flight from Bengaluru to Bali that had a transit stop in Singapore on October 1. After her meal at about 3.30pm, the woman fell asleep with a blanket covering her.
While sound asleep on her window seat, she suddenly felt her right breast being squeezed. She immediately woke up to find that it was Ravichandran Vignesh, the Indian man seated next to her who had molested her. Shocked and outraged, she screamed at him. That’s when he quickly removed his hand and pretended to sleep.
She then requested to move her seat and was given another seat at the back for the rest of the flight. Later, she sent a feedback complaining about the incident and also lodged a police complaint with the Airport Police Division the next day.
Three days later, on his way back from Bali, the 23-year-old Ravichandran was arrested during his transit through Singapore when police managed to track him down.
The man pleaded guilty to the molestation charge and said he was “drunk, high, and tempted” to touch the woman’s breast. However, he said he came from a poor family and had never taken a flight before. Besides, he said that he “did not know the laws of Singapore” and assures that he has not behaved indecently in India before. He said he was from a poor family and begged to be sent back to his home country, India.
The judge sentenced him to six months’ jail time in Singapore after DPP Deputy Public Prosecutor (DPP) Amanda Han added that Ravichandran had committed the crime at a confined space where the victim could not escape and used some force as well.
According to Yahoo News, he said,
“I do not know the laws of Singapore. I have not done this back home in India before.
“I will not touch any woman again. I will not travel overseas again. I will not come back to Singapore again.”
For a molestation charge, Ravichandran could have been jailed up to 2 years, fine or caned, or a combination of both.
