Third Grader Abuses Kindergarten Girl Over Protection Money
CHON BURI – A three-year-old kindergartener was forced to drink bathroom cleaning liquid and water from a toilet by a girl seven years older because she would not give her protection money, at a school in Sattahip district of Chon Buri province, a report said on Friday.
The victim’s aunt, Champa, 47, whose last name was withheld to protect the child, said her niece told her that she was bullied this way on three separate occasions by a third grader at her school, but she did not tell anyone because she was afraid that the older girl would hurt her.
Ms Champa said she confronted her niece’s teacher and was able to obtain CCTV footage showing the bully caught in the act.
In the footage, the third grader, aged about 10, acted alone in the rest room in mistreating the young child, but three other students were on lookout, the Daily News reported.
The little girl begged the senior student not to hurt her, but she was slapped, shaken and ordered to drink water out of the toilet and also forced to drink cleaning liquid.
Ms Champa filed a complaint at Na Jomtien police station in Sattahip against the third-grade student and the school.
She then posted the acquired video clip on Facebook on Thursday. The footage was shared across the internet and has gone viral.
The victim’s angry father, Anurak, whose last name was also withheld, said he had not expected his daughter to be viciously mistreated at the school, because teachers there were suppose to supervise their students.
He said his young girl was lucky that the school uses homemade bathroom cleaning liquid, which does not contain deadly chemicals found in most manufactured cleaning fluids.
