A form five student torched a classroom notice board and wrote obscene words across the walls of the corridors at his school in Kuala Lumpur following a Facebook rage. Kosmo! reported.
The incident on Saturday at the SMK Setiawangsa occurred at around noon while other students were making preparations for a farewell event for their retiring school principal, due to be held next week.
A student, who wished to be known only as Nabila, said prior to the incident there was a heated argument over a Facebook posting between the boy and several other students.
She told the daily the culprit used red spray paint to scribble vulgarities before burning a notice board, in an apparent attempt to burn their class.
A school gardener reportedly stopped the fire from spreading but claimed he did not see who committed the arson.
Nabila alleged the boy had opened a fake Facebook account in July and used it to hurl abuses against fellow students.
“I had also received a Facebook message, in which he said he was unhappy with another Form Five student,” she said, adding that he had put fear and worry among the school’s Fifth Formers who would be sitting for the SPM examination in about 20 days.
Wangsa Maju OCPD Supt Nor Azman Muhamad Yusof said a report had been lodged and the police were investigating the case.MYNEWSHUB
