South Seberang Prai OCPD Supt Shafien Mamat said the student had lodged a police report as he was afraid to attend school after receiving several threats from his friends and teachers.
“The students claimed that he accidentally ‘liked’ the page and right after that, he received threats in his Faccebook page from his friends,” he said when contacted Wednesday.
The Form Five student claimed to ‘like’ the said Facebook page on Sunday and turn up at the Bandar Tasek Mutiara police station to lodge a police report on Monday.
