However, it was later revealed that the whole incident was actually a staged event at a Negri Sembilan school.

According to a post on SK Taman Warisan Puteri’s Facebook account, the “altercation” was part of a safety demonstration organised by the school for its pupils to train them on what to do if a stranger ran amok in the school.

"The objective of the demonstration is to prepare and train our students and teachers on how to handle such an incident if it happened at the school.

"The preparation covered the angle of self-rescue if the incident actually happened," read the post.

Earlier, several reports claimed that a man believed to be the father of one of the pupils at a school went on a rampage armed with a stick after his son was allegedly beaten by a teacher at the school.

In the video, a man wearing a hat and a purple T-shirt is seen shouting at two teachers that one of them beat his child while threatening them with a large stick.
