Teens Charged with Murder: How did it happen?
The incident occurred on October 24 at 2.30pm on the second floor of the Tampin Bus Terminal where the victim, K. Sarayanan, was waiting for the bus with another friend.
The victim was confronted by a group of five schoolboys from another secondary school who often mocked Saravanan’s walking style.
The attack seemed to have started after a series of arguments between the victim and the group. It is learnt that the victim was kicked violently and was stomped on in the brutal attack.
A trader, who was present at the scene of the attack and wished to remain anonymous, said that he only realised the group was attacking someone when he heard them cheering and saw the victim lying unconscious on the floor.
He said that the boys were attempting to resuscitate the victim after they noticed that the victim was foaming at the mouth.
“The group fled the scene when a group of traders ran to the victim’s aid,” he said.
The victim succumbed to brain and spinal injuries on the way to the hospital. He was pronounced dead at 3.20pm at Tampin Hospital.
It was reported that a crowd of approximately 30 people just stood by and watched the attack.

The victim’s mother, M. Mala, 36, said her only son complained about the bullying by the group two weeks prior to the incident.
“He was afraid to attend school and I informed the school about the existence of the gang,” she said.
“My son may have been naughty at times, but he was a good boy.”
“I want those responsible for my only child’s death to face the severest penalty,” she said to Datuk Mohd Nardin Awang after the political secretary of Deputy Prime Minister Tan Sri Muhyuddin Yassin presented her with cash aid on October 28.
