A student suffered a broken leg after he was slammed against a chair by his teacher in a KAFA religious school in Marang, Terengganu.
According to Buletin TV3, the incident started when the teacher asked the boy, who is also the class monitor, to retrieve the Quran from the back of the class around 5 pm on 6 July.
However, the teacher was angered when the boy did not retrieve the Quran fast enough, and carried the boy and threw him against the chair in an outburst of emotions.
It was reported that the boy’s legs landed in a folded position.
The boy then cried in pain but the teacher ignored him until 6 pm when he discovered that the boy wasn’t able to walk or move. The teacher then sends him home.
Upon reaching home, the boy complained about the pain in his leg to his mother, and the parents quickly brought him to a private clinic and had an X-ray done.
The parents were shocked after the X-ray showed that the tibia and fibula in their son’s right leg broke.
He was then referred to Hospital Sultanah Nur Zahirah, Kuala Terengganu for further treatment.
The school was informed about the incident and the teacher, tagged along with another teacher visited the victim’s home to ask for forgiveness. They also requested that the family not lodge a police report.
The school even offered compensation of RM300 and allowed the boy to borrow a wheelchair.
The family of the teacher was also reported to have come over to the victim’s house to carry out an alternative traditional healing ritual on the boy.
Nonetheless, the parents of the boy were infuriated by the entire incident and lodged a police report on 8 July to take further action.
The case is also reported to be investigated under Section 325 of the Penal Code.
