This is the shocking moment a gang of three teens beat up another girl and repeatedly hit and pull her around by her hair.
The incident took place in the district of Didim in the western Turkish province of Aydin and was filmed by onlookers who did not intervene in the assault.
The three high school students, identified as N.E., D.K. and Z.K., beat up classmate A.B. for as yet unknown reasons.

In the footage, one of the girls karate kicks the victim and then starts kicking and kneeing her in the groin.
A pal jumps in and grabs the victim’s hair, pulling her down and dragging her on the ground.
One girl apparently tries to stop the violence but she is pushed away so that the beating can continue.
At one point, the aggressor in blue trousers is seen pulling the victim along the ground by her pony tail.
According to local media, the teens’ family members became embroiled in a separate fight and a criminal complaint has been filed with the local police.
Reports said that seven people were arrested during the altercation and later released after giving statements.
The investigation is ongoing.
