Father wants justice for son thrashed by school bullies



KUALA LUMPUR --- The father of a 16-year-old boy who was hospitalised after he was allegedly assaulted by senior students of his school is demanding justice for his son after the traumatic experience.

Sound engineer Alexander Ventha­na­yagam, 48, said his son was beaten up by six Form Five students at his school in Jalan Bukit Nanas here on Jan 14, leaving him with severe injuries to the face and shoulder.

The boy was hospitalised for three days and on medical leave for 45 days due to a dislocated shoulder and internal bleeding in the throat, said Alexander.

His hospital bills exceeded RM25,000 but thankfully, Alexander had insurance.

“Now, my son is traumatised and finds it difficult to go back to school,” said Alexander, who claimed the school was turning a blind eye to the issue.

The bullies, he said, had been verbally abusing his son and friends for years. “The seniors before them were kind to my son. But this year those guys graduated, so the six did as they pleased,” he said.

Alexander said he spoke to the discipline teacher after the verbal abuse against his son.

“The teacher told me that my son was a big kid and could take care of himself. Then he said that if I didn’t like it, I could transfer him out,” Alexander claimed.

On the day of the incident, the boy was apparently called to a secluded area of the school for a “talk” but things turned physical when the six attacked him with metal chairs and wooden planks.

“My son fought back to protect himself but was quickly overwhelmed,” Alexander said, adding that the teachers were aware of the fight after his friends brought him to the school office for medical attention.

According to the son, all the “culprits” received was two strokes of the cane each.

Alexander said he had made reports to the Education Ministry and police.

“The reason I’m speaking up now is because I want justice for my son.”
