Another bullying that led to death

Defence varsity students among 36 held over cadet's death
SERDANG: Thirty-six university students have been arrested in connection with the death of a navy cadet officer from the Malaysian National Defence University (UPNM).
It is learnt that the final year student, identified as 21-year-old Zulfarhan Osman Zulkarnain, was found with burn marks and bruises, in a 25th floor apartment here at around 8pm on Thursday.
It is believed that Zulfarhan Osman was still alive when friends rushed him into an ambulance.
However, Selangor CID chief Senior Asst Comm Fadzil Ahmat said the victim was pronounced dead at around 10pm at Hospital Serdang on Thursday.
It is believed that Zulfarhan Osman may have been a victim of bullying and was allegedly bound, beaten and burnt with an iron.
SAC Fadzil, however, declined to confirm or deny the circumstances of Zulfarhan Osman's death, saying only that it is an ongoing murder investigation.
Earlier on Friday, police and forensics teams went to the UPNM campus at the Sungai Besi army camp and arrested over 30 students.
"A total of 36 students, all male, aged 20 to 21, have been arrested. Thirty-two of them are from UPNM while four more are from UNITEN," said SAC Fadzil when contacted on Friday.
All of them have been remanded for a week until June 8.
"It is still an ongoing investigation. Please let us carry it out without everyone speculating," he said.
Why are there so many bullying in schools, some leading to death?
Before this was Tahfiz school, the victim died but authorities and PDRM let the abuser free because of lack of evidence.  Me think the way investigation are done shows connection can bury concrete evidences leading to no case.
Then there is the case at the Police Cadet Academy where new students are treated like punching bags.
Religious schools are also trendy in bullying.  
Most of the cases involve the Malays.
Recently an MP showed his frustration that Malay youth on drugs are rising and there is no solution.
I told him there are solution but no one is concern enough to take action. He suggested I wait 6 months for him to get his power to change the Malays. What is another 6 months when I have waited 40 years. I will make sure he keeps his words.
