Six individuals aged 18 to 25 have been detained by the police for being involved in a horrifying bullying incident that took place in Kampung Perasing Jaya, Terengganu on Friday (22 July).

According to Sinar Harian, Kemaman District Police Chief, Superintendent Hanyan Ramlan said they received a report about the incident where the individuals were said to have accused their 15-year-old friend of stealing RM100 and then setting him on fire.

He said that the victim went home at 3 am while crying in agonising pain as he reached out to his father who was shocked to find his son suffering from burns.

Hanyan said the police have since detained the 6 individuals to help with the investigation. The case will be investigated under Section 307 of the Penal Code.
