The police allegedly visited the home of a netizen, purportedly over a “harmless” comment he had made online about wanting to throw an egg at Law and Home Affairs Minister K Shanmugam.

Facebook user Edmund Zhong had made the remark about wanting to throw an egg at the minister in the comments section of a post on Channel NewsAsia’s Facebook page.

In a post on Facebook group ‘Complaint Singapore’, Edmund wrote: “Apparently 3 days ago, 2 officers from Ang Mo Kio Division HQ went to my home regarding my egg throwing comments towards K Shanmugam.
