Teen attacked in school by seniors

A 15-year-old girl suffered minor injuries on the face and bruises on the neck after she was slapped and punched by her schoolmates last Thursday.

This bullying incident took place at a school in Pokok Sena, Kedah, last Thursday.

Nur Fatihah Md Lazim said she was approached by a group of seven seniors while walking to a motorcycle parking space with her cousin after school, reported The New Straits Times.

An argument broke out after a few minutes and some of the seniors slapped, punched and shoved her to the ground.

The victim said one of the attackers started slapping her face and she tried to hit back, but missed.

"Then she pulled my scarf and hair before the rest of the group joined her by pushing me to the ground and kicking me.

"They later warned me against telling the teachers and my family about the incident," she said when met at her house last week.

Nur returned home and told her sister about the attack.

Her sister later informed their mother, who took her to a nearby police station.

Angered that the victim had lodged a police report, the group of seniors attacked her again at her house that evening.

Nur said she is traumatised and afraid the bullies will assault her again if she goes to school.

Kota Star police chief Assistant Commissioner Adzaman Jan confirmed the report and said the police had recorded statements from all seven students before releasing them on police bail.

The case was investigated as one of voluntarily causing hurt.
