2         The accused, Parthivan S/O Ramaya (Parthivan), was a Staff Sergeant of the Singapore Police Force (SPF), attached to the Ang Mo Kio Police Division Headquarters.

3         Investigations revealed that on 03 January 2013, Parthivan arrested one Dwi Sulistiani (Dwi) in connection to a theft case. She was then brought back to Ang Mo Kio Police Station.

4         On 04 January 2013, as an inducement for recommending leniency in Dwi’s theft case, Parthivan obtained physical intimacy from her in an interview room within Ang Mo Kio Police station. On the same day, Parthivan obtained sexual gratification and physical intimacy on three other occasions from Dwi in his Yishun Ring Road flat and at a stairwell along Fernvale Road as the rewards for recommending leniency in the investigation of her theft case.

5         Parthivan will be charged on 09 April 2013 for four counts of corruptly obtaining gratification, which is an offence punishable under Section 6(a) of the Prevention of Corruption Act, Chapter 241.
