SINGAPORE — Disciplinary action has been taken against schoolgirls seen in a viral video fighting at a public car park, the Ministry of Education (MOE) said on Tuesday (Jan 18).

In response to TODAY’s queries, MOE said: “The school is aware of the incident and has taken educative actions, including counselling the students involved and engaging their parents.

"We take a serious view on acts of violence and appropriate disciplinary actions have been taken."

MOE did not elaborate and declined to say which school it was. 

TODAY understands that the incident took place a week ago.

The police confirmed on Tuesday that a report has been filed and investigations are ongoing.

In the 30-second video, two girls are seen hitting and kicking a girl in a blue school uniform while another watches the fight unfold at a multi-storey car park within a housing estate. 

One of the two girls shouted, “I also not happy with you”, before hitting out at the girl in school uniform. 

At this point, the second girl pulled the girl’s hair from behind, threw her to the ground before repeatedly hitting her on the head and kicking her, including once on the face.

The video ended moments later and it is not clear what happened next.
