At an inquiry yesterday into the death of a man in an LRT train incident, two SMRT officials came under intense questioning.

Video footage taken on April 19 last year showed that Mr Tan Yio Toh had jumped onto the rail track of Petir LRT station seconds before he was hit and killed by an oncoming LRT train.

The two officials who took the stand were Mr Chia Yuen Huat, a manager of the Operations Control Centre of Bukit Panjang LRT (BPLRT) System and Mr Tang Chen Chong, chief controller of BPLRT System, who was also on duty in the centre at the time.
