It all started with an argument between the two groups earlier, who eventually died, Bharaj said. Then, around noon, three students were taken to the atrium by a group of six to eight people – two of whom were not school students.

There were allegations that a knife was found during the altercation, although police have no evidence to support these allegations.said the police spokesman.

No one involved sustained any injuries requiring medical attention and no cases were filed as a result of the incident.

Ang abusers fled before police arrived, Indy Bharaj said. Police identified most of the parties involved and contacted some of their relatives, he said.

We have no reason so far to treat this violent incident as an act of intimidation, Mr Bharaj said. I’m sure there are ramifications on the school and police side […] whether to end in suspension or expulsion or whatever.

One of the mothers of the students recounted that she punched her son in the face and his forehead became swollen afterwards.

He sat as he leaned over his phone when they started hitting other people who really had nothing to do with ithe says.

Shortly after the fight, her son sent her photos and a text message in which she wrote that.tried by a child [le] stab.

This mother recounted that she tried to call the school and her son in vain. When he later saw a video of the dispute on social media, his reaction was visceral: I literally felt pain in my hearthe says.

She did not allow her son to return to school on Thursday and condemned the inaction of the English public school board Hamilton-Wentworth (Hamilton-Wentworth English Public School Board) to ensure the safety of the student.

They don’t care, the student’s mother is sad. Obviously they don’t care about security because they have allowed the return of the children already […] endanger the safety of all.
