3-Year-Old Ipoh Girl Wounded After Alleged Caning By Nursery Teacher; Mother Lodges Police Report

IPOH: A 3-year-old girl suffered a wound which became infected after she was allegedly severely caned by a teacher at a nursery in Bercham, near here on Wednesday.

Outraged by the alleged incident, the girl’s mother confronted teachers at the nursery who initially told her that her daughter had simply been “scratching herself”, and that no caning had taken place.

Dissatisfied by the explanation, the 45-year-old housewife and a teacher from the nursery took the toddler to a clinic in Taman Ipoh Permai, where a doctor confirmed that the wound had been caused by caning, and that it had become infected.

The woman lodged a police report on the incident on Sunday.

An investigation later found that a caning did indeed take place, and the teacher responsible was fired over the offence.

"On the day of the incident (Jan 24) at 7.45am, the victim's mother sent the girl to the nursery at Taman Lindungan Bercham Indah. She was in good condition.

“At about 6pm… the woman found that there was a wound on her daughter’s right hand and was told by two nursery teachers that the victim had been scratching her hand,” Ipoh police chief Assistant Commissioner Mohd Ali Tamby said.

In spite of the explanation, he said the girl’s mother lodged a report at the Bercham police station at about 10am on Sunday. The nursery owner and a supervisor later came forward to give their statements.

Following a probe, a 32-year-old nursery teacher admitted to caning the girl on the right hand until a swelling appeared. The teacher was immediately sacked.

“Police will summon the suspect to give a statement on the incident,” Mohd Ali said.
