Wangsa Maju OCPD Supt Noor Azmi Yusoff said the victim’s mother lodged a police report that her 15-year-old son was beaten up by a schoolmate on April 10.
“We have begun investigations and recorded the statements of four people, including the mother and a witness.
“We went to the school on April 12 and the school’s administrators informed us that they will divulge all information once their internal investigation is concluded,” he said when contacted.
The school administrators also informed the police that the 14-year-old suspect was suspended until April 12.
Supt Noor Azmi said the police are adhering to standard operating procedure in the case.
“We are being transparent in terms of our investigation.
“The case has been classified under Section 325 of the Penal Code for causing grievous hurt,” he said.
