Kalaiarasan Muniandy, a 22-year-old Malaysian was carrying out his duties at Paya Lebar MRT when he prompted a helper that she will be given a summon of $300 for drinking water. The helper replied that she was unable to pay the fine and only had $10 with her, the security officer took the money and asked her to leave.
