Police Receive Report On Bullying At School

SHAH ALAM -- Police have confirmed receiving a report on bullying at a secondary school in Klang involving three students.

Selangor police chief Datuk Mazlan Mansor said the police would conduct a probe on the incident and the case was being investigated under Section 323 of the Penal Code for voluntarily causing hurt.

“Based on the report we received today, the incident took place when three students were performing a marching drill in the school premises.

“A Form Six student slapped a Form four student during the training,” he told reporters at the handover of duties ceremony by ACP Nor Azman Muhammad Yusuf to ACP Harjinder Kaur who will replace him as the new Selangor Commercial Crime Investigation Department chief.

The 12-second video that went viral on Facebook today showed a student being slapped by another student while being watched by a friend during a matching drill at a secondary school in Klang.

Meanwhile, commenting on the murder case of a female administrative assistant at the Sultan Abdul Samad Vocational College in Telok Datok, Banting near here yesterday, Mazlan said the suspect had been remanded for a week until July 18.

Mazlan said the murder case was considered closed with the confession of the 28-year-old male suspect.

“In this case, the suspect himself called the police and confessed he had strangled and stabbed the victim.

“As we understand, the case also involves extreme provocation and our investigation also found the suspect was undergoing treatment for mental stress,” he said.

In the incident at 2 pm, the body of Zaimah Mahmod, 57, was found in a store at her office with stab wounds on the neck and body.
