NIBONG TEBAL: A man shouted abuses and hurled stones at SMK Nibong Tebal here today, barely a week after its 14-year-old student M. Vasanthapiriya died.
The school's Parent and Teacher Association (PTA) spokesman told theSun that he was informed by the principal of the school of the incident.
"The man came to the entrance of the school gate at about 10.15am, yelled and threw stones at the school despite the presen ce of security guard and teachers there. Luckily no one was injured," he said.
Police were rushed to the school when a report was lodged by the school. The registration number of the motorcycle has been given to the police.
The spokesman appealled to the public not to take the law into their own hands as such acts would only add salt to the wounds inflicted by the death of Vasanthapiriya.
He added that the PTA would call for a press conference after the state education department (JPN) and police have released the outcome of the findings in the investigation of the case.
The Form Two student suffered brain injuries after she attempted to hang herself last Wednesday. She was accused by four teachers of stealing a smartphone from one of them in school the week before.
She died a day after Thaipusam.
The frail girl was placed in the intensive care unit of the Seberang Jaya Hospital for the last eight days, after she was found barely alive by her father in her bedroom, with a suicide note - "Teacher, i did not take your phone".
She had also bade farewell to her parents and grandmother in the note, before tying herself to a steel rod in her bedroom.
When contacted, Penang Deputy Chief Minister II Dr P. Ramasamy said no one should take the law into their own hands.
"Lets wait for the conclusion of the two investigating reports from JPN and police," he said.
