KOTA KINABALU: A 10-year-old boy allegedly had an ear stapled by his teacher after she found that he did not complete his homework last week.

The boy apparently told his parents about it after they saw some injuries on his ear.

A police report was lodged against the teacher who teaches at a school in Likas near here on Friday (Sept 27) morning.

Kota Kinabalu police chief Asst Comm Habibi Majinji said the teacher will be giving her statement about the matter on Tuesday (Oct 1).

"We will also get more information from the boy and his parents when needed," he said on Monday (Sept 30).

Sabah Education Department director Mistirine Radin was quoted by a news portal as saying they will be investigating the case thoroughly.

She said they will also give the teacher counselling.

She urged teachers to not take matters into their own hands and to leave the disciplining and punishing to disciplinary teachers.

Mistirine also said that there are standard operating procedures to follow in cases where students need to be punished.

Attempts are being made to get the director for more information on the case.

It is not known whether the teacher involved is still allowed to be on duty or asked to take leave pending investigations.
