IPOH: Two boys and two girls in Form One have claimed that they were assaulted by a teacher at their school in Sitiawan after he became angry over an incident involving a playful act by a group of students.

In the incident, which occurred at 5.20pm at SMJK Nan Hwa on Wednesday, the teacher, who is in his 30s, was said to have become irritable at a group of students who were playing with water outside a classroom.

When one of the girls accidentally poured water on the teacher’s clothes, he punched her in the face, causing bruises.

The teacher then entered his classroom to start his class.

But, when he learnt that three students, including a girl, had forgotten to bring their notebooks, he became enraged and allegedly punched them.

One of the boys was left bleeding after the assault.

The students were sent for treatment to a hospital while their parents lodged police reports against the teacher.

Chairman of the school board of governors Ling Leong Peng said the affected students were traumatised and had been advised not to attend school until action is taken against the teacher.

Ling claimed that this was not the first time the teacher had resorted to violence.

Last month, he allegedly punched a student at the school.

He was also said to have hit the principal of another school where he was teaching earlier.

He said the teacher’s previous cases were reported to the Manjung education office, but he claimed that no action was taken.

“We want the authorities to suspend him and do something about his behaviour. This cannot go on,” he added.

Manjung OCPD Asst Comm Jaafar Baba confirmed the incident.
