Singaporean man has gun pointed at him on KTM train, only to find out later it was army exercise

For a Singaporean family travelling home from Malaysia last Thursday, their train journey turned into one that they will never forget. Mr Peter Tan, his wife and four-year-old son had boarded the Malayan Railway (KTM) train in Mentakab in Pahang state at 2.45pm after visiting relatives there. At about 6pm, a gunman boarded the train and threatened the passengers. At one point, the man pointed his gun at Mr Tan's head. The 50-year-old electrician told The New Paper yesterday how he had feared for his life. But his fear later turned to anger when he found out the "attack" was part of an army exercise. He is upset that no prior warning was given to the passengers.
