RACISM

PETALING JAYA: gangsterism reared its ugly head in University Putra Malaysia when about 50 :pro-establishment" students took the law into their own hands and manhandled seven students who are members of an organisation perceived to be "anti-establishment" last Monday (July 17, 2006).

a video clip obtained by the Sun showed the large group surrounding and pushing about six members of teh UPM Student Progressive Front ( SPT) in the campus canteen.

giving an account of an incident to the Sun today, third-year Chinese Studies student Lim Sok Swan said she and six other friends were manning a help counter for new students when the incidents started.

Lim said a group of about 50 students lead by a student council leader suddenly surrounded and scolded them for setting up the the help counter when the SPF is not a registered body.

" They demanded we leave within 10 minutes, saying we are not allowed to be there to disturb students".

" We replied that we were just just helping students welfare and denied disturbing anyone as it was in acanteen that is open to everyone" she said.

" We had done nothing wrong, so we declined to leave. They then pushed us away and removes our tables, chairs and flyers." She added.

She alleged that the campus securitu officers who were presents did not offer any help and merely watched.

" I was ver scared", Lim said, adding she called the police as  she felt the tension was escalating.

" They only stopped harrasing us when police arrived," she added.

Another students said she was pushed and fell on the floor when trying to take some of photographs of what was happening.

The student who said her camera broke when it fell lodged a police report at the Sri Serdang police station.

" A similar incident took place on July 11 2006 where a group of "pro-establishment" students tore up our materials at the help desk", she added.

Meanwhile, Suaram coordinator, Chang Lih Kang urged the Higher Education Ministry, the police and UPM's authorities to investigate and take action against the culprits.

" Its a crime to intimidate someone," he said adding that at least 15 police reports have been lodged over the incident.

He said investigations revealed that the incident arose as a result of a misunderstanding over an event organise by the students.

He said apart from some pushing and jostling among the students at the time of the incident, no one was reported to have been assaulted.

Mohd Fuad said police have spoken to UPM officials and have left the matter to be resolved internally.

" But our officers will continue monitoring the situation to avoid any untoward in future,' he said.

UPM vice chancellor prog Dr Nik Mustapha R. Abdullah and deputy  vice chancellor could not be reached for comment today.
