TWO Form Five students in Alor Setar will be suspended from school for five days following a fight recently, Guang Ming Daily reported.
One of the girls allegedly attacked the other in the presence of her father in front of their school on Monday as she could no longer tolerate the bullying.
The video clip of the incident had gone viral on social media where some netizens slammed the man for allowing his daughter to attack her schoolmate.
Education Minister Datuk Seri Mahdzir Khalid, who instructed the Kedah Education Department to investigate the incident, posted on his Facebook that the issue had been settled and the two students had been given five-day suspensions each.
The report, however, did not mention when the suspension would take effect.
Mahdzir said the student, who was seen attacking her schoolmate in the video clip, would pay RM80 in medical fees to the victim, and her parents would be transferring the girl out of the school.
