Police are hunting a bully filmed by his friends assaulting a mentally disabled man and making him sing his country’s national anthem while being forced to wear a metal bucket on his head.
A video of the sickening attack, in Muar, Malaysia, received a backlash from viewers after it appeared on Facebook.
It appears to show one man in particular leading the ordeal by hitting a shirtless victim with a rod before making him kneel down and sing Negaraku, Malaysia’s national anthem.

The victim, clearly confused, appears to be forced into the actions and now the police have launched a search for a suspect, said to be 30 years old, and wanted on a charge of causing hurt by dangerous weapons or means.
His victim, also 30, is said to have mental health issues and appears to be in distress in the short film.
Superintendent Idris Rajab, of the local police, said it was believed a steel rod was used against the victim.
Supt Rajab said: “Thus far, the report found that the victim is suffering from mental illness and believed to have been bullied by the suspect.
“The case is being investigated under Section 324 of the Penal Code for intentionally causing injury to the victim.”
