GEORGE TOWN, Oct 28 — A male student of the Mara Junior Science College (MRSM) in Balik Pulau, near here, has alleged that he was beaten up twice by a group of schoolmates and his life threatened late Saturday night and early yesterday.
The victim, who only wished to be known as Arif, 16, said the students who attacked him had a grudge against him as he had reported them to the school's Student Disciplinary Board (SDB) last week.
"In the first incident at 11.30pm (on Saturday), a group of about 20 Form Four students came to my bed and pulled me to a corner of the hostel room where they punched me twice on my stomach and kicked my jaw," he told reporters at his house, here, today.
He said two Form Five students then intervened to stop the attack before he was attacked again.
"This time, five students came to my bed and they punched me on my left shoulder and stomach, and knocked my head against the wall," said the victim who was appointed as a member of the SDB in June.
Arif said one of the students then took a broken window glass shard and said to him that if the other students were not there, he would have killed him.
The victim who is now commuting between his home and school, said he was traumatised by the attacks and threats but had not decided whether to move to another school.
Arif's father who went to the MRSM early yesterday morning, said he found his son's clothes badly torn while his head had a swelling and bruises.
The victim received outpatient treatment at Balik Pulau Hospital and a police report was lodged on the incident at the Balik Pulau station yesterday.
Southwest district police chief, Supt Mohd Hatta Mohd Zain when contacted, confirmed having received the report and said the case was being investigated under Section 147 of the Penal Code for rioting.- BERNAMA
