A video showing a female student being attacked and beaten up by five or six other female classmates near the Shanghai Medical Vocational School has recently gone viral online.
The video, uploaded on May 4, shows the student in question being slapped, kicked and dragged by her hair, according to Dongfang Satellite Television.
It also shows that several other students were watching the scene but none of them stepped up to stop the beating.
An investigation was carried out by the school on the third day after the incident occurred at around 3 p.m April 29.
The students were second year students from the Shanghai Medical School. Details are sketchy, but the girl who was beaten up is suspected to have gotten involved in a couples’ relationship, and the offended girlfriend decided she’d gather up her friends and teach the poor girl a lesson she wouldn’t forget.
Mao Yanping, vice president of the school told reporters that the student received no serious injuries from the attack and that they’re currently investigating the case.
“They have a long life ahead of them. We’ll deal with the matter in accordance with the school regulations. We hope that it doesn’t leave a negative influence on their future life.” Mao said.
Fortunately, the student wasn’t stripped and beaten up by the other students on street.
