He had attacked a ComfortDelGro taxi driver on 1 January 2020 after a drinking session at Zouk with 31-year-old Taleb Kishen and the latter’s wife.

Taleb was sentenced to 17 weeks imprisonment for his part in the assault and other offences.

What happened?

Koh was with his friend, 31-year-old Taleb Kishen, and the latter’s wife at Zouk; where they finished drinking at about 2.30am.

Koh saw Chan’s taxi nearby, where the taxi driver was hoping to get a phone booking for his taxi because it meant he would earn more money.

Koh and Taleb approached Chan and asked him if he could taxi his wife home, and Chan rejected them and told them to try getting a taxi from the taxi stand at Clarke Quay.

Koh then reached through the front passenger seat window and punched Chan in his left eye. Taleb then went over to the driver’s seat window and held Chan down as Koh punched him in the head.

Talen also joined in and punched Chan repeatedly near his right eye and his nose before choking the victim.

At about 3.50am, police officers who were nearby at the time witnessed the assault and went over to the fracas, before Taleb then stopped choking the victim – Koh had already left the scene by the time the police went over.
