A man captured on video beating a 12-year-old resident of a children’s home in Taiping, Perak has been put on garden leave pending its committee’s extraordinary general meeting on March 3.

However, the home’s vice-president T. Kunacegeram said that the video that has since spread on the internet was not evidence of child abuse but merely captured the 70-year-old man, who is the home’s manager, in the act of disciplining the child.
