An Indian Origin Youth was sentenced to prison in Singapore for allegedly having sex with an underage girl and cheating her by not paying the promised amount.

A 14-Year-Old Girl placed a post on social networking app seeking help for buying a new mobile. Hari Kumar Anpalagan (25) responded to the girl's post and offered to help but asked what he gets in return. The Teenager offered sexual services for a payment of 70 Singapore dollars. They met at the deck of her Apartment at 9 pm in May 2016. Even though she informed him about her age, Hari had sex with her but left the place without paying her.

The Girl's School came to know about the unusual behaviour and informed the police. Cops traced Hari through the text messages in the Girl's mobile.

Hari was convicted with one count of hiring an underage sex worker. An imprisonment of 10 months has been ordered by the District Judge who commented that Hari added salt on the wound by not paying the minor after sexual exploitation.
