Video clip of school­girls beat­ing girl riles Ne­ti­zens

New Straits Times - - News -

KU­NAK: A video show­ing a group of se­condary school­girls beat­ing another at the town field here on Satur­day has drawn the ire of Ne­ti­zens.

Many vented their anger on so­cial me­dia at the one-minute clip, which was up­loaded on Face­book and has gone vi­ral.

The video sug­gested that the fight was over a boy, and more than five peo­ple were seen as­sault­ing the vic­tim.

“It is bet­ter that these girls go into lock-up. They think they are Ku­nak gang­sters, and em­bar­rass those who wear tudung,” the cap­tion of the video read.

A com­menter said: “That is such lousy be­hav­iour. Imag­ine these girls ask­ing a high wed­ding dowry of RM20,000 when they grow up with this at­ti­tude.”

Another Ne­ti­zen com­mented that it was not worth fight­ing with friends over a girl or a boy.

The district po­lice said 10 stu­dents, aged be­tween 15 and 17 from var­i­ous schools, who were in­volved in the in­ci­dent, in­clud­ing the stu­dent record­ing the in­ci­dent, had been brought in for in­ves­ti­ga­tions un­der Sec­tion 147 of the Pe­nal Code for ri­ot­ing.

“A re­port has been lodged by the mother of the vic­tim, a 15year-old stu­dent, the day af­ter the in­ci­dent. The in­ci­dent hap­pened out­side the school premises and not at a school field as some had claimed,” said district po­lice chief Su­per­in­ten­dent Mohd Nasarud­din M Nasir.

“The vic­tim had also re­ceived out­pa­tient treat­ment at the district hos­pi­tal.”

He said par­ents of the stu­dents in­volved, as well as their teach­ers, had been called in to have their state­ment taken to help in the in­ves­ti­ga­tions. The mo­tive of the as­sault was be­ing de­ter­mined, he added.

The district Ed­u­ca­tion Of­fice will con­duct an in­ves­ti­ga­tion into the case.

Ku­nak ed­u­ca­tion as­sis­tant of­fi­cer Abu Samah A. Bakar said since the in­ci­dent hap­pened af­ter school ended, they would take ac­tion based on guide­lines and stan­dard op­er­at­ing pro­ce­dure.

“My per­son­nel will look into this mat­ter and our depart­ment will help in the po­lice in­ves­ti­ga­tions.”

The screen­shot of the video show­ing a 15-year-old stu­dent be­ing as­saulted by school­girls.
