Then it's either mistaken identity or a scam. Was the harassment online though?

I have no further details , i asked but did not get any reply from this supposed Police Officer .TBH i cannot relate any case to me.

In general terms, if this is for real, would i be in trouble if i want to visit SG somedays?

If it is real the information in the email should confirm it, one way or another. What is the domain used in the email address? If it is a court or police email then it should have a ".gov.sg" TLD.

If it doesn't have a a "gov.sg" TLD then I would treat it as fake.

Actually i have been told by my legal consultant that even if it is for real (which i honestly do not see where it could be coming from) , the police officer is not legally allowed to contact me as they know that i am not and have never been in SG .

So basicly his duties stops at the border of SG.

Could somebody confirm

It's hard to give a meaningful answer without knowing if it is real. Does the email address have ".gov.sg" at the end?
