Those with mental disabilities are often misunderstood by others, however, it is never an excuse to abuse someone of the group.

Recently, it was reported that the police have opened an investigation paper into the alleged abuse of an autistic child by a school teacher at a Seberang Jaya, Penang school.

According to a statement on their official Facebook page, Seberang Perai Tengah police chief Assistant Commissioner Tan Cheng San said that the investigation paper was opened under Section 323 of the Penal Code for voluntarily causing hurt.



The offence carries a maximum of one-year imprisonment or a maximum fine of RM2,000 or both upon conviction.

Tan said that the police received a report from the mother of the 7-year-old autistic child on July 19 at the Seberang Jaya police station.

He said the initial investigations showed that the autistic child who is a pupil of a special education school in Seberang Jaya, had acted aggressively in class, scaring other pupils and leaving them crying.

“A female teacher, in her 30s, approached the child and covered her ears in an attempt to calm her down. As a result of the teacher’s action, the child sustained bruises on both ears and was sent to Bukit Mertajam Hospital for treatment.”

Tan said police had opened an investigation paper after the child’s mother lodged a report.



“Investigations are ongoing. We urge the people to stop making the incident viral as it could cause confusion and anxiety among the people,” he added.

The pictures of the child’s injuries were circulated on social media platforms. According to the user who first shared it, a friend of hers informed her that her grandchild had her ears twisted by a teacher until they turned blue and black.
