SINGAPORE: Authorities are investigating an alleged incident of curry being poured into Tampines River. 

On Sunday (Feb 4), Facebook user Shirley Lc Tan posted a photo of a reddish-brown substance in the river, writing that it was a wedding caterer at the void deck of Block 408 Pasir Ris that had dumped curry gravy into the river. 

The post was shared more than 2,400 times as of Monday, but it has since been taken down.

NEA and PUB officers went down to the site immediately, and NEA is investigating the alleged incident, it added.
