Is there any place on this earth where women are completely safe? It's a sad truth that no one can really answer this with full conviction.
When Uma Mageswari, a Singapore citizen of Indian origin, boarded the MRT (Mass Rapid Transit), she didn't know the ride would turn into a shocker for her. Within a few minutes of getting on the train, she found a man quickly occupying the seat right opposite to her, despite the entire carriage being empty.
What followed next is enough to outrage any sensible person. The man took his phone out and began filming her shamelessly without realizing that everything was clearly visible in the reflection of the mirror window behind.
Utterly shocked and disgusted by his indecency, she decided to catch him in the act and made a video which shows the man filming her, acting all casual while zooming in and out intermittently.
Uma uploaded the video and narrated the entire incident in her Facebook post.
This is a video that I had recorded on 13th May 2017 Saturday at 7.40pm a minute or so after I had boarded the train at Outram mrt. I was heading towards Harbourfront to meet a friend. This guy quickly plonked himself on the seat opposite mine though it wasn't as if the train was crowded and he had to race to get a seat. I was seated in the 2-seater located at the far ends of the carriage. He then proceeded to whip out his phone and I think the rest speaks for itself once you view the video.

Is personal space too much that we're asking for?
