KOTA BARU, 14 April:
More than 50 students and a few teachers were attacked by hysteria claimed to have seen ghosts since last Monday.
Following the incident, The Pengkalan Chepa II National Middle School is ordered to close today as reported by Kosmo today.

“However, teachers of the school still need to be on duty as usual (today),” said the source as being reported.
According to the press further, the incident started when a few students claimed that they had seen the ‘hantu pocong’ (pocong ghost) inside an empty classroom.
The said students then collapsed, raved and rolled on the floor before the hysterical attack then ‘transmitted’ to other students.
As observed by the press yesterday, it was found the school learning sessions proceed as usual but most of the female students were not in the classrooms. They congregated at a place in the school reciting Al-Quran and pray.
