This forum thread is very old and is related to the UI for ASP.NET AJAX Grid, not the Kendo UI Grid. The current behavior is not supported in the Kendo UI Grid - if the selection is set to multiple, the Grid will provide both option - click and drag for selection.
A possible workaround would be to disable the selection and manually attach a click handler to the Grid rows, that will add the k-state-selected CSS class to them.
In this case you could retrieve the selected rows via jQuery, instead of using the built in select() API method.
selected = $(
"#grid tbody tr.k-state-selected"
