2 POSB ATMs in the east vandalised

Two POSB ATMs were splashed with paint over the weekend.

Two POSB automated teller machines (ATMs) were splashed with paint over the weekend. The vandalism is believed to be related to loanshark harassment.

Police are investigating and trying to determine if the two incidents, both in the eastern part of Singapore, are linked, The Straits Times reported.

On Saturday, the police were informed that an ATM in Tampines Street 44 had been splashed with paint.

On Sunday morning, they received a call that something similar had been done to another POSB ATM. This one was on New Upper Changi Road.

DBS Bank, which owns both ATMs, said it is working with the police on their investigation.

Domestic helper Nani Sulastri, who saw what happened, was horrified by the incident.

She has read her fair share of news about other domestic helpers falling to death, and could not fathom why the woman would subject herself to such danger.
