In a sign that tensions are growing between native Singaporeans and foreigners, one foreign student from India was scalded by hot curry thrown from a flat by angry residents, according to a report by a local English tabloid.
Residents living in Silat Avenue in Tanjong Pagar GRC have long complained about increasing noise in the night coming from HDB hostels in the vicinity.
A few HDB flats there have been converted to hostels for foreign students studying in Singapore and they were accused of disturbing the peace in the neighborhood.
One Indian foreign student Sukhjinder Singh found himself the target of abuse when he was scalded by hot curry thrown down a flat above his hostel located on the ground floor of Block 149, Silat Avenue.
A police report was lodged and the police is currently investigating the matter.
