SINGAPORE - Train operator SMRT said it has lodged a police report against two men who were seen smoking in one of its trains.

A video of the duo passing a cigarette amongst themselves, taking turns to puff on it, while a friend filmed the act, was posted on Facebook.

The train was travelling in the Bukit Batok area at night, on an undetermined date.

In response to queries from The Straits Times, SMRT's vice-president for corporate information and communications Patrick Nathan, said on Tuesday: "This is a brazen act. A police report has been made.

"We encourage members of the public to alert SMRT staff should they encounter such situations."
