According to a previous report, local public transport operator SMRT lodged a police report on a case of vandalism at its Bishan depot on Monday morning.

In a written statement, the police said that a train was vandalised at Ang Mo Kio Ave 1 on May 5, 2014, at 6.17am.

Police investigations are on-going.

This is the second instance of vandalism at SMRT's Bishan depot.

The first case took place in August 2011, where graffiti was discovered on a northbound train.

In another incident of a MRT train being vandalised, Swiss national Oliver Fricker and his British friend Dane Alexander Lloyd broke into SMRT's Changi depot and vandalised a train in May 2010.
