‘Nasi lemak’ row lands two in police lock-up

MALACCA: A row between three men and a teacher over the sale of nasi lemak at the Malacca High School (MHS) here got so fiery that two of them ended up in a police lock-up.

It is learnt that the men were upset with the 30-year-old teacher after the latter barred one of them from selling the popular favourite to students since last week, saying that it was against school regulations.

On Monday, the trio barged into the school at 11.20pm to confront the teacher at his quarters within the compound of Malacca High School, country’s second oldest educational institution after Penang Free School.

State deputy CID chief Supt P.R. Gunarajan said yesterday that all three acted aggressively towards the teacher, with one of them even manhandling and intimidating him.

“They then attempted to drag the teacher out of the school compound in their bid to settle the nasi lemak issue.

“But the terrified teacher managed to free himself and rushed to the warden’s office, where he quickly locked himself in and called the police,” he said.

He added that while this was happening, the aggressors continued to scream at the teacher to come out to face them.

A patrol car arrived at the school at 11.40pm and two men, aged 25 and 21, were detained. Their accomplice managed to flee from the scene.

The teacher later lodged a police report.

“The two have been remanded and we are looking for the third man,” said Supt Gunarajan.
