A police report has been made against non-practising lawyer M Ravi.

This was after he allegedly assaulted fellow lawyer Jeannette Chong-Aruldoss.

The alleged assault occurred outside the office of Chong-Aruldoss at The Adelphi on Tuesday, Aug. 8.

Alleged assault by M Ravi and three other men

Chong-Aruldoss, 54, was allegedly confronted by Ravi and “three big-sized thugs” when she was walking to her office at Eugene Thuraisingam LLP at about 11am.

While one of his companions was allegedly recording the incident on a mobile phone, Ravi proceeded to push her to the ground and throw her belongings at her and all over the corridor.

Chong Aruldoss also said he claimed that she touched him first.

After the incident, a staff member from the law firm called the police.

Ravi was previously charged with criminal trespass

Ravi had formerly worked at the People’s Park Centre branch office of Eugene Thuraisingam LLP as head of the knowledge management.

He was sacked in June.

He was charged with criminal trespass after he tried to enter the firm’s office.

An op-ed in The Online Citizen previously mentioned Ravi’s struggles with his mental illness, and his continued failure to stay on medication or seek medical treatment.

Ravi’s version of events

Ravi told The Straits Times that Chong-Aruldoss had pushed him first and she fell by herself.

He also said he had gone to his former office to serve them a legal letter.

He added that he had captured the incident on video and will be releasing the footage after National Day.
