Police have received 12 police reports over the SK Seri Pristana controversy where non-Muslim pupils were shown having their meals in the shower room.
Sungai Buloh police chief Superintendent Junaidi Bujang said 10 reports were from parents and even outsiders, who wanted action taken against the school authorities.
"There were also two reports from the headmaster and a teacher who claimed that they were threatened," said Junaidi, adding that their reports have been classified as criminal intimidation.
Headmaster Mohamad Nasir Mohd Noor, 57, claimed that he had received death threats by people who had called the school office.
Junaidi added that the other staff, a teacher, had lodged a report alleging that the issue had been blown out of proportion and has caused the staff in the school to feel demotivated and lose their focus on teaching.
However, he said that contrary to previous reports, he has yet to receive any report from the woman who exposed the case - known only as Guneswari.
Guneswari had also claimed that she lodged a police report after alleging that she and her daughter were threatened with kidnap.
"No, I have not received any report from her," the police chief confirmed.
Meanwhile, Selangor deputy police chief A. Thaiveegan has denied stating that the police would use the Sedition Act against those who spread photographs with regard to the shower room fiasco.
Thaiveegan claimed that he was misquoted by a "certain newspaper".
Utusan Online had reported that Thaiveegaan had stated that those who spread the photographs showing the pupils eating in the shower room could be investigated under the Sedition Act as such images could result in provocation and racial conflict.
"Police would not hesitate to take action against those found spreading seditious information about the school over the social network," he was quoted as saying.
"This was absolutely not true, I was misquoted," he said. - July 26, 2013.
