Second school fight incident in a month in Sabah

 KOTA KINABALU: A second viral video of students fighting outside their school has emerged in a month in Sabah, this time outside SK Kolombong near here.

The 51-second video clip shows two boys in sports shirts fighting, with other students nearby joining in while students can be heard cheering during the fight.

State Education Department director Datuk Maimunah Suhaibul said the incident was believed to have occurred outside the school compound on Aug 9.

“This case has been referred to the police,” she said.

Maimunah declined to reveal more information pending investigations, while city police chief Asst Comm M. Chandra could not be reached for comments.

In the earlier video which went viral in July, 10 girls could be seen beating a 16-year-old student in the Kunak district.

The 10 girls, aged between 15 and 19, have been questioned by the police and were waiting to be charged.

It was learnt that the victim was beaten up after she posted a picture of her with a boy taken during Hari Raya on social media.
