[Malaysia] Ragging footage given to police

JITRA: A 19-year-old Kolej TUDM trainee here was allegedly forced to swallow his vomit by his seniors in the third year at the academy as part of a ragging activity.

The trainee, Mohamad Hazim Ahmad Azman, claimed that he was forced to eat food with dried grass in it and drink drain water.

The footage, recorded on a digital camera by Mohamd Hazim's course-mate on Jan 27, showed 15 trainees pouring hot water on his body.

The victim’s father, who saw the recording when his son returned to their home in Taiping for the Chinese New Year holidays, accompanied his son to lodge a police report in Alor Star yesterday.

The case was referred to Jitra police, who now have the recording.

Kubang Pasu OCPD Supt Mohamed Karim Abu said the incident was being investigated.
