The police are investigating after a wall in an underpass outside Buona Vista MRT station was found to have been spray-painted on Tuesday morning.

When The Straits Times visited at about 12.40pm, police officers were at the scene and cones had been set up in front of the wall.

Part of the graffiti had already been removed.

The graffiti included drawings of a syringe, and a hanged man clutching a dollar sign while stuck between the letters W and F.

The message read: “If 1 syringe = 1 death = 1 hanged man HOW MANY 4 U SG GOV?”

In response to queries from ST, the Land Transport Authority (LTA) said it is aware of the incident and has filed a police report. The graffiti has since been removed, it added.

This is the second time in 2023 that graffiti has been scrawled on the wall of an underpass leading to an MRT station.

In April, a message that said “EVR1 Knows C19 is real EVR1 MUST” was written in the underpass leading to Kent Ridge MRT station near the National University Hospital.

The LTA filed a police report then and had its contractor remove the graffiti.
