On Thursday, 1 March, a hidden pinhole camera was found in one of the handicapped toilets in Nanyang Technological University (NTU). The particular toilet is pretty frequently used by female students.
Lianhe Wanbao, a Singapore Chinese afternoon newspaper, reports that the hidden camera was discovered by a woman.
The newspaper quoted a cleaner at the school saying that a woman rushed up to him on Thursday saying that someone had installed a pinhole camera in the toilet.
The handicapped toilet, which is located in the Basement 1 of the Humanities & Social Sciences building, is pretty frequently used by the girls.
The woman, who found the camera, was using the toilet when she noticed a black plastic object shaped like a hook placed slightly above the air vent on the toilet door.
The hook, which had an air freshener pack hanging on it, was positioned at the same level as the toilet bowl. The woman felt that it was unusual, and after checking found that it contained a hidden camera. She then asked for someone to call the police.
It was reported that the camera contained an SD card. However, it's not known whether there were any videos or pictures inside.
According to a report in The Straits Times, the police were called at about 5pm on Thursday regarding a case of "insulting the modesty of women along Nanyang Drive".
"The police were called and the device was immediately removed and taken away as part of police investigations," a spokesman for NTU told the Straits Times.
Meanwhile, the Straits Times quoted a student, who is in her second year studying English at NTU's School of Humanities, saying:
"The handicapped toilet is used pretty frequently by the girls because there are only four stalls in the ladies' toilet, so I guess we are all rather worried at the moment."
