KAJANG: The fight that broke out between two groups of students outside SMK Cheras Perdana is not related to gangsterism.

In confirming this, district deputy OCPD Supt Azman Ayob also urged parents not to panic over the incident that resulted in 15 students and a teacher suffering injuries.

He said initial investigations revealed the fight was due to a misunderstanding, which occurred two days earlier when two individuals had an argument while queuing for food at the school canteen.

The fight involving more than 20 people including students and six outsiders happened on Friday at 12.30pm after school was over.

Supt Azman said the male teacher in his 40s suffered minor injuries when he tried to break up the fight.

Thirteen students suffered injuries and received outpatient treatment at the Kajang Hospital while two received stitches for wounds to their heads.

Supt Azman said the students aged between 15 and 17, as well as the six outsiders aged between 17 and 20, which included a former student and relatives of the students, have been remanded for four days to facilitate investigations.
