PETALING JAYA: A video of a teacher being scolded by a woman for caning a schoolgirl until bruise marks were seen on her arms and legs has gone viral on social media.

The two-minute, twenty-eight second video showed the teacher, believed to be a senior teacher or headmaster, attempting to explain himself while the woman, believed to be the girl’s mother, berates him.

The video is believed to have been shot in the school, with the victim in her school uniform.

The male teacher is clad in a long sleeve shirt complete with name-tag.“She said that she was sorry. Why did you do this to her? You are a cikgu besar (to mean headmaster, or senior teacher).

“Don’t talk like this. You cannot cane her like this. As a teacher, you cannot do this. You are wrong,” the woman is heard telling the teacher.

The woman, who was not visible in the video, continued: “She only said things to you. She did not hit you, did she?

“If she did, then it’s fine (for you to hit her back). Don’t be like this. You are angry? You can fight? You’re strong? Cannot say like this. You are a teacher,you want to teach the children,” the women told the teacher in Bahasa Malaysia.

The video continued with the teacher asking the woman if she was aware of what the girl had said to her.

The woman then said she knew and uttered “aqua” (ladyboy) aloud, and cuts in: “But she said sorry!”, to which the teacher admitted that she did, but only after the caning and when the girl’s friend told her to.

The woman again interrupted the teacher’s explanation before another woman can be heard talking to her in Chinese.

Photos of her injuries were also circulated on social media. There is also a photo of the girl seen holding a police report, believed to be lodged against the teacher.

Meanwhile, a student was badly beaten and kicked by his senior after he apparently made fun of him at a secondary school in Setiu, Terengganu.

The assault was captured in a 14-second video showing the aggressor, clad in a white T-shirt, constantly hitting the victim who tried to protect himself with his hands. According to sources yesterday, the older boy is said to be 16, and the younger aged 14.

The incident is believed to have been recorded by the aggressor’s friend.

When contacted last night, state education director Shafruddin Ali confirmed the incident.

“The parents of both boys agreed to settle the matter at the school level. No police report was made,” he said.
