On 27 May 2024 at about 2.10pm, a DBS Bank’s representative called for the Police’s assistance upon receiving at least 30 calls from a male caller who had allegedly mentioned in some of the calls that he would be planting a bomb within an hour at the DBS Bank’s Headquarters.

Through follow up investigations, officers from the Bedok Police Division established the identity of the man and arrested him within four hours of the reported bomb threat. Preliminary investigations revealed that the man had no means to carry out his threat and there were no suspicious items found at the DBS Asia Hub and DBS Asia Central. 

The man will be charged in court on 29 May 2024 with the offence of communicating false information of harmful thing under Section 268A of the Penal Code 1871, punishable with imprisonment for a term of up to seven years, a fine which may extend to $50,000, or both.

The Police treat all security threats seriously and will not hesitate to take action against anyone who causes public alarm with false threats. Beyond the fear and inconvenience caused to other members of the public, the making of false threats comes at a cost of public resources that have to be deployed to deal with the incident.
