Shanmugam asks police to investigate attack on madrasah students
The police are investigating a case of three students of a madrasah being attacked.
The attack is understood to have taken place in a public place yesterday.
The motives for the attack are not clear, Law and Home Affairs Minister K. Shanmugam said in a Facebook post.
He had asked the police to investigate the matter, he said in the post late last night.
"We will get to the bottom of it and ensure that justice is done," Mr Shanmugam wrote.
Two days ago, during a dialogue with 60 students from the six madrasahs here, Mr Shanmugam warned against letting Islamophobia develop in Singapore.
The Madrasah Al-Ma'arif Al-Islamiah said in an earlier Facebook post that the affected students had been counselled and parents had been contacted.
"We seek your support... so that this case can be resolved quickly and dealt with justly, to ensure our students' safety," it said.
