Dear Sir,

Re: Ganster Assaulting Student inside School Compound

SMK Datuk Patinggi Haji Abdul Gapor, Stampin, Kuching, Sarawak


A student from the above school has today approached me, accompanied by his father. The student's left eye was red with clogged blood on the cornia. According to him 4 gangsters came into the school compund at approximately 5:30 p.m. 29-01-2010 and beat him up. They punched his face and head, grabbed his head and smashed his head against the wall. He was badly injured.

How can the school management allow gangsters to come into the school compound and assault the students, bearing in mind that it happened during school hours (the student is in the afternoon class)? Was there any security for students while they attend classes in school?

Other than the physical injury suffered, the student is now in trauma and it is uncertain whether he can still garner enough courage to return to the school to continue his study after the incident.

As this is a very serious case, I urge your goodselves to take immediate action on this matter and see to it that the offenders were brought to book as soon as possible.

On the other hand, kindly let us know what action will be taken by the Ministry to ensure that nothing of this sort will happen again.

Meanwhile, the student and his father reserve their rights.

Should you need to get in-touch with the student or his father for further information, please feel free to call 013-8002505. Thank you for your kind attention and urgent action herein.

Yours faithfully,


Chong Chieng Jen
