Scarsdale International School: The Unfolding of Events
The video shows three teenage girls holding their classmate by the hair and pinning her to the ground, and forcing her to drink alcohol. While the video was recorded by the male friends, the alleged culprits, Jannat Malik, Umaima Malik, and Noor Rehman ganged up on the girl and verbally abused the alleged victim and told her to say sorry.
This isn’t the first video I am watching. I am hearing these stories every day from the students. So many of them are drugs addicted. Local administration, staff, and in some institutions even seniors are involved selling drugs in unis & colleges.
