[VIDEO] 16yo Langkawi student brutally assaulted by more than 10 classmates

The boys were later reportedly escorted in a police van.

A video showing a group of boys kicking and punching a 16-year-old student in Langkawi has recently gone viral on Twitter.

The victim was initially challenged to a fight by a classmate and began exchanging words heatedly.

Out of nowhere, the victim was kicked in the back by another classmate and had a flying kick slammed right into his upper body area.

The force of the two kicks sent the victim sprawling to the ground and he was soon surrounded and viciously beaten by several other classmates. A desk was also thrown on top of him before the video came to an end.
