Form One Student Allegedly Hurt In Ragging Game At School Hostel

Excerpt From Bernama

SHAH ALAM, Jan 15 (Bernama) -- A form one student of a secondary religious school in Salak Tinggi, Sepang, was injured after falling into a drain during a suspected ragging incident early Saturday, his father claimed.

Mohd Aqil Abdul Aziz, 13, was admitted to Selangor Medical Centre (SMC) with injuries on the face, mouth and legs.

He was moved to SMC by his family after receiving initial treatment at Banting Hospital, said his father who only wished to be identified as Abdul Aziz in a brief interview at SMC.

Abdul Aziz alleged his son was the victim of ragging by a group of senior students who forced form one students of the school including Mohd Aqil to play a game of ghosts at about 2am.

He said Mohd Aqil fell into a drain after he was ordered to run out of his hostel dormitory in the dark.

"Aqil ran because he was scared and he did not see the drain," he said.

Abdul Aziz said he believed several other students also fell into the drain and hurt themselves but he did not know their condition.

Mohd Aqil joined the school on Wednesday.

Abdul Aziz said he was disappointed with the attitude of the school management which delayed informing him of the incident.

"I am most dissatisfied that the school informed me only at about 6.45am when the incident happened at 2am. By the time I arrived at the (Banting) hospital, my son was already admitted to the emergency ward," he said.

Abdul Aziz said he had not made a police report but had contacted the Sepang police station to inform the officers of the incident.

He said he would discuss with his family on further action to be taken.
