School headmaster investigated for molesting man

MALAYSIA - It was reported in Metro Ahad that a 49-year-old headmaster of a primary school in Jempol, Negri Sembilan, is being investigated for allegedly molesting a 26-year-old man at the school last Tuesday.

Jempol OCPD Supt Hamzah Alias said the incident occurred at about 1pm. The school's IT worker was resting in his room when the headmaster entered.

"The victim claimed the headmaster unzipped his pants and started molesting him," he said, adding that the IT worker's plea for the headmaster to stop was ignored.

Supt Hamzah said the headmaster later warned the worker not to tell anyone about the incident.

The traumatised victim lodged a report with the Jempol district police station at about 11.30am on Thursday, Supt Hamzah said.

The headmaster was picked up on the same day. He is being investigated under Section 254 of the Penal Code for molesting the IT worker. He was released on police bail later that day.

State Education director Datuk Kalsom Khalid said the department was waiting for a report on the incident. "We would decide on the next course of action pending the outcome of police investigations."
