The ‘pailangs’ – a Hokkien dialect for ‘thug’- trio in the infamous school bully video clip spread like wild fire on Facebook in recent weeks will likely be brought to justice.
Kota Samarahan district police chief DSP Lee Chong Chern told local dailies police had completed their investigation on the case and it had been forwarded to state police headquarters for further action.
“We proposed for the accused to be charged under Section 323 of the Penal Code for voluntarily causing hurt to the victim. The penalty upon conviction under the Section is imprisonment for a term or fine of RM2,000 or both,” said Lee, reports The Borneo Post today.
Lee said the three suspects were all upper secondary school students (Form 4) and the victim was a lower (Form 3) at a school in Samarahan District.
PRS Wanita chief, Senator Datuk Doris Brodie urged the authorities to solve the case soonest possible.
“It is disheartening and worrying to see how school girls could viciously assault their schoolmate in such a manner,” she said, report the Borneo Post yesterday.
Doris said it saddened her to see young school children particularly girls in Sarawak are becoming vicious and violent.
