ITE College East principal Yek Tiew Ming said, “We take a serious view of the matter and do not condone such behaviour,”
Dr Yek added that the college is investigating the incident and will take appropriate action against any students found violating college rules.
The 10 students, aged between 16 and 18, were arrested on 26th January 2018, the police said in a statement on Wednesday. All 10 of them are male students at the college.
There were speculations that the fight started because one student ratted on another student for not doing homework:
