The soldiers allegedly attempted to bypass the queue and withdraw money from the school ATM, but the students resisted and insisted that they join the queue.
According to a source, the soldiers angrily ordered the students to lie down, resulting in an exchange of words and the involvement of the institution’s Chief Security Officer (CSO).
During the confrontation, the soldiers became agitated and slapped the CSO for interfering in their matter by attempting to mediate a peaceful resolution between the military men and the students.
According to reports, the soldiers also beat up some male students before assaulting a female student for allegedly recording them. The situation quickly deteriorated, with both parties engaging in a physical altercation.
