Voices recorded from the video claim that the attacks left the victim bleeding from open, gashing wounds on the head.

A lady is heard asking what time the ambulance is coming. (To which the response is “half an hour”, in which case a Grab ride could probably get him to the hospital faster.)

Netizens were appalled and angered, demanding that the perpetrators be locked up by the police.

Many others expressed sadness for the victim, whose condition is unknown. “A moment of impulse becomes a lifetime of regret. Humans only have one life.”

Later, the fight broke out after a misunderstanding between the two men. The victim was forced out of the entertainment center and was then assaulted by the other suspects.

All the suspects have been detained. Further investigations will be carried out under Section 148 of the Penal Code for rioting after a remand application was made.
