An Indian national physiotherapist who was working at Gleneagles Hospital was suspended from practice for two years by the medical practitioner regulator, Allied Health Professions Council yesterday (Feb 8). The Indian national arrived in Singapore in 2009, under the CECA trade agreement with India which Prime Minister Lee Hsien Loong renewed last year.
On 12 Sep 2015, Hiraniyan Don Quarrie hid behind a pillar about 5m away from a group of school girls who were studying a HDB void deck at Blk 111 Bedok North Road. The Indian national masturbated and exposed his private part repeatedly to the teenager.
A month later, the Indian national started flashing to another teenager girl at a HDB playground.
In 2016, the Singapore Courts however fined him only S$3,000 for the two charges. Hiraniyan Don Quarrie continued his physiotherapist profession at Gleneagles Hospital for the next 3 years.
The Singapore medical council however acted to suspend his license, 3 years after the conviction.
State media Straits Times and CNA had refused to publish Hiraniyan Don Quarrie’s photo because he is a foreigner.
Under a renewed CECA trade agreement with India signed by PM Lee Hsien Loong last year, more Indian professionals would be allowed to work in Singapore without normal visa requirements.
