SINGAPORE - A former engineer who took upskirt videos of unsuspecting women on escalators at shopping malls and MRT stations was jailed for three weeks on Friday.

Teh Thian Seng, 51, now unemployed, is believed to be the first such offender with a psychiatric problem to be sentenced to jail.

The father of two was also fined $8,500 after admitting to having 17 obscene video films at his Hougang flat in 2012.

He had also pleaded guilty to insulting the modesty of women at the underground passageway between Ngee Ann City and Wisma Atria shopping centres and the escalator of City Hall MRT station on Aug 25 that year.
