“This is a very sad day, not only for her family, but for Malaysians who have been praying for her recovery,” he said.
The girl, a student of a school in Nibong Tebal had attempted suicide after being accused of stealing her teacher’s iPhone. She was then called up by four teachers last Wednesday and was interrogated over the disappearance of one of the teacher’s mobile phones.
However even after her repeated denials, one of the teachers reportedly struck the student for failing to own up to theft.
She even denied the accusation made towards her to her father, Muniandy. The teacher and her husband then allegedly threatened to lodge a report to the police.
The 14-year-old girl was then found unconscious but alive by her father, who rushed her to hospital, after trying to hang herself at home.
The girl had left behind a suicide note, saying “Teacher, I did not take your phone,” written on a torn page from her school exercise book. She also said goodbye to her parents and grandmother.
Muniandy reported the entire incident to the police last Friday.
