The recent case of 14-year-old Muhammad Danial Akmal Zulkhairi, who had gone missing from his school in Cheras, has taken a dramatic turn following his safe discovery.
The student at a full boarding school, claims to have been the victim of severe bullying, prompting him to make a desperate escape.
Found at a bus stop in Bandar Tun Razak, he was in a weak state when discovered by the public.
His mother, Shuhada Jamaludin, 38, relayed the harrowing tale, stating that her son, known affectionately as Enel, fled the school at 3 am on Thursday to escape the bullying he could no longer bear.
According to an interview by Sinar Harian, Shuhada highlighted the severity of the bullying that Enel endured, marking it as a recurring issue that had been previously dealt with in a more conciliatory manner.
This time, however, the situation has escalated, leading her to consider legal action to fight for her son’s rights and well-being.
Upon finding Enel, he was extremely disheveled, having survived on minimal food – just bread and water provided by a passerby since his escape.
His appearance was likened to that of a homeless person, a stark contrast to his usual self, indicating the severity of his ordeal.
The Royal Malaysia Police (PDRM) confirmed the incident, noting that they were informed of Enel’s disappearance on Thursday.
An immediate search was initiated, with the police seeking the public’s help through social media.
According to Sinar Harian, Enel was eventually located near the Saidina Othman Mosque in Bandar Tun Razak and was taken to Hospital Canselor Tuanku Muhriz (HCTM) in Cheras for medical evaluation.
