Bangladeshi Over-Stayer Thinks He’s Ang Peng Siong, Tries to Run Road by Swimming Across Causeway

Thank goodness for the vigilance of our Police Coast Guard personnel.

They managed to nab this 30-year-old Bangladeshi who was an over-stayer in Singapore when he tried to swim across the Causeway.

Last night at about 11.20pm, ICA officers at the Woodlands Checkpoint were notified that a man was swimming toward the pipeline along the Causeway.

A search by ICA officers and officers from the Police Coast Guard eventually caught the over-stayer in the act.

Also arrested were 2 other Bangladeshis who were acting as his lookouts.

The over-stayer-turned-escapee can be jailed for up to six months’ jail and given a minimum of three strokes of the cane for over-staying or illegal entry.

Those convicted of helping him leave Singapore illegally face between six months and two years’ jail, and a fine of up to S$6,000.
