The mystery phenomenon that has affected students from two schools in the capital is showing no signs of abating.
And rumours spreading wildly through the short message service (SMS) are apparently sowing more confusion in the minds of the public. Yesterday, more students were hit by the unexplained hysteria but this time at Sayyidina Hussain Secondary School in Jerudong.
It all began with a Form 4 student returning to the classroom from the restroom at around 10am, according to a teacher from the school. When other students started getting hysterical as well, the school asked all the students to assemble at the hall.But as the situation threatened to get out of control, the school called the parents and asked them take their children home, the Bulletin was told.
The Royal Brunei Police Force last night warned that anyone found guilty of spreading such malicious SMS would be dealt with accordingly. Following the hysteria cases that have occurred in schools in the country affecting several students in the past weeks, the police in a press statement advised the public not to be influenced with false rumours spreading through the short message service.
