A debt collector who inserted three bundles of drugs into his body was jailed and ordered to be caned on Wednesday.

Mohamed Nizar Mohamed Razali, 41, was given 10 years behind bars and six strokes of the cane for importing five packets containing 115.25g of Ice - the street name for methamphetamine - at Woodlands checkpoint on Dec 17 last year.

He was sentenced to another 10 years and six strokes for taking drugs outside Singapore.

Both sentences are concurrent, which means he will serve 10 years and get 12 strokes of the cane.
