SINGAPORE - Mr Raheem Samad, 36, had no idea what was going on, but all he could think about was catching up with the car and getting the driver to stop.
But his orange KTM motorcycle was having difficulty squeezing through the narrow gaps in the mid-afternoon traffic along Upper Serangoon Road on Wednesday.
"My bike handles were too wide to make it through without hitting the side mirrors of the surrounding vehicles, which were also honking at the car," he said.
"The Camry was moving fast and it was swerving from lane to lane. I tried my best to do the same, but it was very dangerous so I had to watch out for my own safety."
The closest he managed to get to his target was two to three car lengths away.
As the car approached Kovan MRT station, about 800m later, the body got dislodged and tumbled in front of a taxi stand.
Without a second thought, Mr Raheem braked and used his scrambler to shield the body from approaching traffic.
My priority was to protect the body. I didn't think about the car that had been dragging it, he told The New Paper yesterday.
The Camry sped off into the distance, he said.
