Checkpoint officers at Woodlands Checkpoint in Singapore arrested a male Bangladeshi on August 18 for attempting to illegally depart Singapore by swimming towards Malaysia, according to a Facebook post on Immigration & Checkpoints Authority (ICA) official page said on Friday.

Preliminary investigations revealed that the 35-year-old Bangladeshi man was under police investigation for voluntarily causing injury by using weapons or means, the post added.

“Our borders are the first line of defence in safeguarding Singapore’s security. The ICA takes a serious view of attempts to enter or depart Singapore illegally,” the post stated.
