One student could be heard egging his friends on to teach another classmate a lesson.

Subsequently, one of the three students at the back of the class started throwing chairs at the victim, who was seated at the desk and using his phone.

Subsequently, the same student approached the victim and began slapping, punching, and kicking him.

He then tipped the victim’s chair over and rained punches to his head while the victim was on the floor.

The target tried to defend himself by covering his face with his arms.

At this point, the student filming said that it was enough.

However, despite the warning, the attacker continued to kick the victim.

He ended by throwing a chair towards the victim, who was still lying on the ground.

No adults were seen in the video.
