A teacher/counsellor from Sekolah Jenis Kebangsaan(T) Simpang Morib, Banting was punched in the face after rumours of him being a couple with a teenage girl surfaced.
The teacher ,38, was assaulted when he met up with the 19-year-old girl and her uncle. At the time of meeting, the victim realized that the uncle was drunk and behaved aggressively towards him.
Things got tensed between them when the girl said the teacher is causing disturbance to her life.
When the victim had enough of the whole situation, he decided to call up the police when he was suddenly punched in the face by the girl’s uncle and his friend, causing his nose to bleed.
Fearing for his safety, the teacher escaped from the scene and managed to call the police for help.
“After further investigation, the girl’s uncle was arrested at Taman Delima, Banting. He admitted to causing harm and threatening the teacher while his accomplice is still on the run”, said Kuala Langat District Police Chief, Superintendent Azizan Tukiman.
