Education Ministry declines comment on MCKK bullying case

KUALA LUMPUR: The Education Ministry has declined to comment on the recent alleged bullying case in a boarding school, as the case is currently under police investigation.

Speaking to New Straits Times, its minister, Fadhlina Sidek said "Regarding the bully case, unfortunately, MOE cannot make a statement because it is under police investigation".

On Oct 4, police launched an investigation into a bullying case involving a Form Four student, who was allegedly assaulted by his Form Five senior at Malay College Kuala Kangsar (MCKK) last month.

Kuala Kangsar district police chief Assistant Commissioner Omar Bakhtiar Yaacob confirmed that a report had been lodged over the incident at about 10am on Sept 24.

He said the case was being investigated under Section 323 of the Penal Code for voluntary causing hurt.

Previously, screenshots of a social media posting by a woman believed to be the sister of the victim went viral on social media.

Apart from sharing the predicament faced by the victim, the woman also vented her frustration over the 'light punishment' received by the students who had allegedly assaulted her brother.

The woman claimed the students, who allegedly assaulted her brother, only received between two and three strokes of the rotan.
