Five students of the Bukit Jalil Sports School, who represented Kuala Lumpur at the National Under 16 Tournament in Sandakan earlier this year were assaulted by senior students at the school on Tuesday morning.

And the parents of the five have since lodged a police report on the incident and are said to have called for a press conference, scheduled for 10.00am Tuesday at the KLHA Stadium in Panati.
The alleged assault was said to have taken place the morning after the players returned from a training session at the KLHA Stadium. The players, who do not represent any team in the ongoing MHL, were at the stadium and trained alongside the KL Hockey Club team that was preparing for the MHL that commences this Friday.
It is alleged that this did not go down well with the senior players and as ar esult around ten of them, with some just observers, took law into their own hands as the beat the five players with hockey sticks. 
And matters came to the boils as several parents headed to BJSS seeking answers as to why their kids were assaulted.
Reports coming out from BJSS tonight are said to be centered around identifying that players involved, but that should not be difficult as its school holidays and only selected players are in the sports school to represent various sports in events, amongst which is hockey as the team plays in the Division One of the MHL.
The school is expected to come down hard on the said culprits and the players also could face expulsion for their action.
And this could result in SSBJ having to pull out of the MHL.

There was no necessity to take law into their own hands and the incident, if true, is a tragedy for the school who provided six players of the silver medal winning squad at the Asian Games recently.
