SINGAPORE- A lecturer allegedly took upskirt videos of a woman at his then workplace earlier this year, a district court heard on Thursday (Nov 28).

The 39-year-old man faces one count of insulting a woman's modesty.

He is accused of using his mobile phone to capture upskirt videos of her in a classroom at around noon on March 6.

Court documents did not reveal if the woman was a student or a staff member at the time.

The Straits Times understands that the man, who cannot be named owning to a gag order to protect the alleged victim's identity, is no longer working at the post-secondary institution.

He was offered bail of $2,000 and will be back in court on Dec 26.
