Blood was seen dripping down uncontrollably on the grass below — a sign that the injury must’ve been pretty severe.

Another footage shows what appears to be riot policemen decked out in armoured suits arriving later at the scene of the incident.

Hope they will be dealt with severely

Kudos to the police for identifying the men involved within such a short period of time.

We hope those involved in the brawl will be dealt with severely to deter other hooligans from doing the same in the future.

We pray that the victim’s injuries were only superficial and that he will make a speedy recovery.
