RAWANG: School violence has reared its ugly head again with a fight that left a Form Three boy dead at a religious residential school here.
The victim, Muhammad Abdul Azim Adnan, 15, was said to be involved in a squabble with another student over missing jigsaw puzzle pieces.
He had allegedly accused another boy of stealing the pieces and a heated argument followed, leading to a fist fight at the volleyball court at SM Rawang here at around 11.30pm on Tuesday.
Mohammad Abdul Azim, the fourth of five siblings, was allegedly punched in the face three times before he collapsed.
School authorities later rushed the boy to the Selayang Hospital, where he was pronounced dead.
“It was a one-on-one fight,” said Selangor deputy police chief Deputy Comm Datuk Abdul Rahim Jaafar.
“At the time of the incident, another student was around.
“Seeing what happened, he alerted the warden,” he said, adding that no weapons were found.
The suspect, also a Form Three student, was picked up on the spot.
The case is being investigated as murder.
The victim’s father, who only wished to be known as Adnan, 54, said he arrived at the hospital at about 12.40am after being informed of the incident.
“I thought my son had only suffered serious injuries. I couldn’t believe that he died,” said the businessman.
Deputy Education Minister P. Kamalanathan said the ministry would ensure that a full investigation was carried out immediately.
