Photographs from Facebook turned into a viral showing appearing chinese lady splashed a cop with a cup of “taho” after she was disallowed from entering the Metro Rail Transit-Boni Station on Saturday morning.
In a press articulation, the Department of Transportation said that at about 8:30 a.m., Chinese lady Jiale Zhang, 23, a student residing in Mandaluyong City, tossed a cup of ‘taho’ to Police Officer 1 William Cristobal who barred her from entering the station.
As indicated by the MRT experts, the security work force asked Zhang to consume her taho first before she would be permitted to enter. Be that as it may, she declined to do so.
This is the point at which the security work force called PO1 Cristobal to clarify the new policy on liquid substances in the station however Zhang sprinkled the ‘taho’ at the officer.
PO1 Cristobal and Zhang were turned over to the Madaluyong City Police Community Precinct 5 for investigation and proper disposition.
In the statement, the DOTr said “We would like to stress that tighter security measures being implemented inside our trains and stations means no harm to our passengers. We are being cautious since we put in our topmost priorities the safety and security of our passengers and personnel following attacks in Mindanao.
“Moreover, it should also be noted that even before the recent ban of bottled water, drinks and liquids, consumption of unsealed food and drinks are prohibited inside trains and stations as this can cause inconvenience, accident and delay to our operations.”
