SINGAPORE: The odd job worker who was captured in a video fighting with another man on an SMRT train was fined S$2,500 on Wednesday.

Fifty-year-old Ng Cheng Kiat admitted to one charge of affray with 40-year-old Teeng Kok Yong.

The incident took place on January 11 this year at about 11.40pm while the train was travelling between Khatib and Yio Chu Kang MRT stations.

Ng had grabbed Teeng's body and punched him in the face.

In seeking for leniency, Ng, who was unrepresented, said his wife had just gone for an operation and is on medical leave.

The maximum punishment for affray is one year in jail and a S$5,000 fine.

Teeng, who is also facing a similar charge, will have his case heard next month.
