IPOH, Feb 1 – A director of a government department has lodged a police report after receiving a letter containing a death threat demanding the transfer of a school principal. According to a police source, the complainant, aged 60, received the letter, which had no sender’s name and was sent by post, about 9am last Thursday.
The source said the letter contained a threat as the sender was apparently unhappy with the principal of a high school in Taiping. “The sender wanted the complainant to transfer the principal to another school before the Chinese New Year, failing which the complainant would be sent to hell,” he said when contacted here today.
Meanwhile, Ipoh police chief ACP Mohd Ali Tamby, when contacted by Bernama, confirmed receiving a report on the matter and that the police was investigating the case under Section 507 of the Penal Code for criminal intimidation. — Bernama
