A 31-year-old Indian-origin Malaysian has been jailed in Singapore for two months for taking indecent videos of a woman showering in a bathroom.

Thuraikumeren Subramaniam had placed his cell phone behind some toiletries at the back of the shower rack and set it to video-recording mode before leaving the bathroom of an apartment unit on March 4 this year.

A few minutes later, his 25-year-old female co-tenant entered the shower unaware of the hidden cellphone. Thuraikumeren later retrieved his cellphone and viewed the recording of the victim bathing.

Another co-tenant, a 22-year old woman, reported to police that Thuraikumeren had peeped at her while she was showering. The women also reported to the police.

Police interviewed Thuraikumeren the next day and found the recording on his phone.

However, his lawyer, Louis Joseph, told the court that his client, who is married with no children and works at the airport, deeply regretted his offence.

The maximum penalty for insult of modesty is one year’s jail and a fine.
