The alleged incident happened in an art gallery, where the Singaporean worked as a teacher.For the past three months, the Singaporean has been living in the art gallery itself and all the victims of the exploitation were his students.
After the boys complained about the man's inappropriate behavior, parents of the children lodged a petition in the Batam Police Station, and soon, the Singapore citizen was arrested.
Hengky, Batam Police's senior commander told that the accused has been living in Indonesia for the past three years and has already overstayed his visa. The officer also added that the Singapore man had offered the victims a good amount of money, so that they remain shut, concerning the incident of molestation.
