KUALA LUMPUR: Four students, aged between 15 and 16, were arrested at 8.50 pm yesterday for alleged rioting following a misunderstanding at a school canteen in Kajang that left two students hurt.

Kajang District police chief ACP Mohd Zaid Hassan said police were alerted to the school fight after it went viral on social media.

He said police received a report from a 16-year-old student yesterday stating that a group of students had beaten him and a friend.
