A junior high school student at SMP Darussalam in Pontianak, West Kalimantan, allegedly threw a chair and cell phone at a teacher on Wednesday morning after he was reprimanded for using the gadget in class.
The teacher, identified as Nuzul Kurniawati, sustained injuries to her head and is currently being treated at a local hospital.
SMP Darussalam principal Ahmad Bustomi confirmed the incident, saying that it had taken place during a class on the history of Islamic culture taught by a different teacher.
The student, NF, was allegedly playing with his cell phone and refused to pay attention, Ahmad added as quoted by Tribunnews.com on Thursday.
After NF allegedly ignored repeated warnings to put his phone away, the teacher asked for help to deal with the situation. Nuzul, who had been in the teacher’s room, agreed to speak with NF, who grew incensed during her speech and reportedly threw a chair at her, followed by his phone.
East Pontianak Police chief Adj. Comr. A Hafidz said NF had been taken to the police station for questioning.
“This is a special case because the suspect is a minor,” he added. (gis/dmr)
