SIBU: A primary school teacher in Lebaan, near here has been arrested for assaulting her headmaster.
Sibu OCPD Asst Comm Saiful Bahri Abdullah said the assault happened at about 10am on Friday.
“The headmaster was on his routine rounds checking up on teachers.
“When he walked into her class, the suspect told him off citing his action as being akin to him not trusting her,” said ACP Saiful yesterday.
A quarrel ensued and ended with the 49-year-old teacher chasing the 40-year old headmaster out of the class in front of the pupils.
The teacher, who was holding a glass of hot water at the time, splashed it on him.
“The hot water scalded the headmaster’s left arm and the left side of his back,” said ACP Saiful. “His left calf was also injured,” he added.
The police called up the teacher who was later detained and remanded for three days.
She had also previously attacked a former headmaster of the school but no action was taken.
