Two of the former SMRT drivers, who were charged for instigating a strike, have alleged in a video online that they were assaulted while in police custody.

In a statement Tuesday night, the police said that these are "serious allegations made by the two defendants on video". It added that the former drivers should file a police report, so that the police can investigate into the allegations.

Their lawyers can also raise this matter in court when the case against them is heard, it added.

The police added that as the case is currently before the court, it is not appropriate for them to comment on the case.
