SHAH ALAM: There was no element of bullying in the case of a Year Two pupil who snipped off the tip of his tongue with a pair of scissors, said police.  

The eight-year-old boy earlier alleged that he was bullied by five older boys.  

Selangor police chief Senior Deputy Comm Datuk Abdul Samah Mat said investigation revealed that the boy had hurt himself during a class.  

“He was not bullied as claimed. 

“Police investigation showed that the boy had played with a pair of scissors taken from the pencil case of his classmate during a class attended by 34 pupils and a female teacher.  

“He hurt his tongue when playing with the scissors,” SDCP Abdul Samah said when met after pinning new ranks for police officers during a ceremony held at the Selangor police contingent hall here Thursday.  

He said that the bleeding boy caught the attention of his classmates and the teacher. The school authorities were informed before the parents were alerted.

“We have concrete statements to prove that the bullying alleged by the boy did not happen.  

“What happened was an accident caused by the boy himself.  

“So the widespread allegation of gangsterism and bullying relating to the case in the school were not true at all, and such speculations should stop,” SDCP Abdul Samah said.  

He added that the investigation paper had been submitted to the Deputy Public Prosecutor (DPP) on Wednesday evening.  

The DPP, he said, was satisfied with the report and decided to close the case with no further action. The report would be submitted to the Education Department.  

SDCP Abdul Samah also advised people not to speculate and circulate allegations on social media.  

“I wish to advise everyone to be patient and give space for police investigation," he added.
