Three construction workers were jailed in Singapore on Tuesday (Feb 20) for performing consensual sexual acts on the same 13-year-old student in May 2016.

Gill Gurjant Singh, 25, and Surjeet Singh, 29, – all three Indian nationals — were each sentenced to 15 months’ jail for having sexual intercourse with the underage girl. They had sex with her within hours of each other on the same day, reports The Straits Times.

Jugraj Singh, 33, will spend eight months behind bars for committing an indecent act on the Singaporean minor.

Offenders convicted of having consensual sexual intercourse with a minor who is below 14 years old can be jailed for up to 20 years and fined or caned.

  1. Nothing to worry about Gursharan. Singapore Sikhs are very good at sweeping things under the carpet. All is well.

  2. Indian culture of sexually abusing young females now also in Singapore? Sadly all are Sikhs from Punjab which is reported to have the highest level of female fetus and child killings.
    14 years girl’s consent is not acceptable and these three should have been in prison for life.
    Will there be any adverse impact on current and future Sikh immigrant workers?
    Will others now look at Sikhs as potential sexual abusers of underage girls?
    Will this now result in Sikh Gurdwaras And NGOs becoming hesitant to supprt/assist Punjab Sikh immigrant workers?
    Feel ashamed when Sikhs are known worldwide as Protectors of Women and Weak which reputation came in during Moghul raids over three centuries ago.
