A search for the crazed man is ongoing, and involving a large fraction of Singapore Police Force officers. “We are using approximately 95% of our force’s resources in the pursuit of the lawyer,” noted a SPF spokesman, adding that the force is also pursuing any who help and harbor Mr. Ravi. “While this will take away from our ability to fight crime such as burglary, assaults, etc., Mr. Ravi represents a much greater threat to our country and we need to get him under control.” He is believed armed and very dangerous, in spite of the fact that he was wearing a government-issued straitjacket at the time of his escape.
