PETALING JAYA: A concerned teacher made a police report after witnessing one of his students being beaten when he was conducting an online class.

"The report was made on Oct 31, and the complainant said that a female student aged 12 was seen being beaten by a man.

"The complainant said he was conducting an online class at the time when he saw the suspect hit the victim with a piece of wood or cane in the back.

"A police team arrested the suspect at a carpark in Section 8 on Nov 4.

"The suspect admitted to hitting his child and said he did so to ensure she would be more attentive during class," said Petaling Jaya OCPD Asst Comm Nik Ezanee Mohd Faisal in a statement Thursday (Nov 5).

He added that the suspect had no prior record and had been released on police bail.

"The Social Welfare Department (JKM) made its evaluation and has decided to return the child back to her family," he said.

In an unrelated case, district police arrested four people suspected of operating an illegal lottery.

The arrests were made on Nov 4 after several raids within the district.

"The suspects are aged between 22 and 43, and one of them is a foreigner.

"Preliminary investigations showed that the syndicate could earn profits between RM100 and RM200 daily.

On current Covid-19 enforcement, ACP Nik said that they had arrested a 34-year-old man on Nov 4 for breaking quarantine.

"The man was found still wearing a white wristband from the Health Ministry when the police arrested him on a sidewalk in SS21/34 Damansara Utama.

"He was on his way to a nearby workshop to fix his motorcycle.

"He has been granted bail and further investigations will be conducted after the end of his 14-day quarantine," he said.
