KUCHING, MALAYSIA - Some secondary school students have taken campus bullying to new heights by posting a three-minute video of themselves tormenting a fellow student on YouTube, reported Bernama.

The Malaysian news agency also said that the victim, allegedly a Form Three (Secondary 3) student in a Sarawak school was kicked, punched and hit with a kettle by a few boys still in their school uniforms at a hostel dormitory.

Despite his pleas for mercy, the perpetrators continued to their beatings.

The victim's family has since lodged a police report.

Students posting their bullying escapades on the internet is not new in Singapore.

Last year, an Anglo Chinese Junior College student was tied up and humiliated on her birthday. Her schoolmates had filmed themselves pelting her with cake and pouring chocolate milk on her uniform.
