This Indian-Origin Singaporean Man Was Jailed For Deliberately Coughing At & Abusing Policemen

Singapore: This Indian-origin Singaporean man is clearly a sadist. He was sentenced to 14 weeks in jail on Monday for deliberately coughing at a police officer and using abusive language at a hospital here last year, The New Indian Express (TNIE) reported.

Devraj Tamil Selvan was also given a three-year driving ban after pleading guilty to four charges, which included using abusive behaviour towards a public servant and riding a motorcycle while already under a driving ban. District Judge Ng Cheng Thiam considered another 10 charges, such as being drunk in public, before announcing the 14-week prison sentence, the report added.

Here’s the story the court heard:

On September 13 last year, the police received a call from a woman who said her sister-in-law’s boyfriend was at their home using violence. While the police were there, Devraj slapped his girlfriend on the face, leading to his arrest.

When he was taken inside the police vehicle, Devraj claimed he could not breathe and was taken to the hospital, where Devraj removed his mask and coughed at a policeman

He later told the police officers: “Take out the handcuff, ***, *****, (expletive in Sinagporean) stupid idiots.”
