PETALING JAYA: A 32-year-old man was detained by police after allegedly threatening SK Seri Pristana’s headmaster Mohamad Nasir Mohd Noor.
It is learnt the suspect, who is the father of one of the students, went to the school at the height of the school’s controversy at about 1pm on July 25 and went to the senior assistant’s office and told him that “The headmaster can enter the school but he will surely get it when he leaves the school grounds”.
Sungai Buloh OCPD Supt Junaidi Bujang said police detained the man at about 10.15am on Monday.
“We picked up the suspect from his home as we view the threat very seriously.
“Two teachers from the school identified the suspect as the man who uttered the threat,” he said when contacted on Monday.
He added the school also received various threatening calls believed to be from the suspect as well as one with the caller saying “I kill you if I meet you”.
Supt Junaidi said the suspect has been released on police bail until Sept 6.
“We have recorded the statements of the suspect and several witnesses.
“We have refer the matter to the Selangor police headquarters before the investigation papers are handed over to the deputy public prosecutor,” he said.
Mohamad Nasir said on July 26 that he decided to take a voluntary one-week of leave after receiving two death threats.
The school found itself in the middle of a social media storm recently after a parent posted photos on Facebook of pupils eating in the makeshift canteen in a changing room next to a toilet.
The photos went viral.
Although some had claimed that the pupils had to eat in the toilet, eventually it was found out that it was actually a changing room with shower cubicles.
