Just because they were not happy with the victim for taking a photo with a boy, 10 schoolgirls went physical on her.
In a video that went viral over the weekend, a group of schoolgirl bullies roughed up their victim apparently because they were upset she had taken a picture with a boy.
The incident took place at a field in Kunak, Sabah, last week.
“One of the girls was not happy with the victim because she had posed for a picture with a boy during a Hari Raya gathering and posted it online,” Kunak police chief Supt Mohd Nasarruddin Nasir said.
The 10 girls, aged between 15 and 17, were picked up from three secondary schools yesterday as police began investigating the bullying case.
Police are recording statements from the suspects and the 16-year-old victim, whose parents lodged a report.
Nasarruddin added that police had called in the parents, district education officials and parent-teacher association heads to discuss the incident as well as the appropriate steps to be taken.
