A student from the National University of Singapore (NUS) alleges that she was stalked by a man who tried to take upskirt photographs of her.

The incident occurred outside Kent Ridge MRT Station on Wednesday (October 9).

The victim alleged she was alerted by another MRT commuter who told her someone is following her.

The commuter also said that at one point the man knelt very close behind her to tie his shoelaces, and that he had seen the man taking photos of her.

Mr Kenny Leck, the owner of BooksActually, also shared images of the man on his social media page.

Police confirmed the report was made and said investigations are ongoing.

Responding to queries from The New Paper, an NUS spokesman said the student reported the incident to the NUS Office of Campus Security (NUS OCS) on Wednesday.

“NUS OCS has reached out to the female student, who declined the university’s offer to provide her with support,” she added.

“We understand that she has reported the matter to the police.”

The spokesman said the school will keep in touch with the student and give assistance to her if required. She said the safety and security of students remains the university’s top priority.

“Security measures are in place to enhance the safety of our campuses,” she said.

“Members of the NUS community are also encouraged to remain vigilant, and to report any suspicious activity to NUS OCS immediately.” /TISG
