The Jakarta Post
A school building has been vandalized in an apparent act of revenge over a brawl that broke out between students of two vocational high schools in Bekasi, West Java.
Students of SMK Karya Bahana Mandiri allegedly attempted to destroy a building at SMK Pijar Alam in an act of revenge after one of their friends died in a brawl.
“We’re investigating the case to prevent it from happening again,” said Bantargebang Police chief Comr. Siswo on Tuesday, kompas.com reported, noting that the severity of the damage was not yet known.
Based on the police's criminal unit investigation, alumni of the two schools played roles in arming the students with sharp weapons that were used in the brawl.
“Those were assembled weapons that the students could buy for around Rp 35,000 a piece,” he said.
A student from SMK Karya Bahana Mandiri was killed in the brawl that took place on Aug. 16, while two other students were severely injured and are currently receiving medical treatment at Bakti Husada Hospital in Bantargebang.
