Teh Thian Seng, 50, accused for upskirt.

Orchard Road is often extremely busy on Saturday afternoons.

But the weekend crowds did not deter former engineer Teh Thian Seng, 51, from tailing unsuspecting women before using his handphone to capture upskirt images of them without their knowledge.

The Malaysian, who is a Singapore permanent resident, committed the offence eight times between 1pm and 3.15pm on Aug 25, 2012.

He was jailed yesterday for three weeks and fined $8,500 after pleading guilty to two counts of insulting a woman's modesty and one count of having obscene films.

Six other charges of insulting a woman's modesty were taken into consideration during sentencing.

He started his spree at City Hall MRT station when he saw a woman in a short, black skirt walking towards an escalator leading to an exit.

He quickly crept behind her and positioned his phone - with the video recording function switched on - underneath her skirt to capture images of her thighs and underwear.

He continued to follow her after she got off the escalator and stepped out of the MRT station. He then captured a shot of her facial features.

The victim was so engrossed with her own mobile phone that she was not aware that she was being filmed.

Teh made his way to Orchard Road to target more unsuspecting women.
