Jailed for punching cabby, cop and mischief
A man was sentenced to five weeks' jail on Thursday for punching a taxi driver and a police officer as well as for mischief.
Rajiv Shukvir, 24, who admitted to three of four charges, was ordered to pay $416 compensation to ComfortDelGro for damaging a taxi door handle which he had forcefully pulled.
A district court heard that Rajiv, who had been drinking with friends at Clarke Quay, flagged Mr Yeo Teck Huat's taxi along River Valley Road at about 2.30am on Dec 1, last year.
After entering the taxi, he behaved aggressively and assaulted the 53-year-old driver who sounded his horn.
