On the morning of Friday, 10 February, a 68-year-old woman's lifeless body was found in a drain at Batu 4, Tandop, Alor Setar, Kedah
According to Kota Setar district police chief ACP Ahmad Shukri Mat Akhir, the victim was hit by an unknown vehicle while walking on the side of the road, New Straits Times reported today, 14 February.
The victim, identified as Goh Gek Lan, suffered multiple injuries to the back of her head and spine, according to a post-mortem conducted at the Sultanah Bahiyah Hospital.
"The autopsy results revealed that the victim died from severe head injuries," Ahmad said.
He shared that police are conducting their investigations under Section 41(1) of the Road Transport Act (APJ) 1987 and are trying to locate eyewitnesses who saw the incident.
Efforts are also underway to retrieve closed-circuit television (CCTV) recordings in the area.
While police investigations are underway, the victim's two sons are now appealing to the public to help find their mother's killer
The two brothers, Ang Kwong Chun, aged 41, and Ang Kwong Loon, aged 39, said that they need the public's assistance to identify the perpetrator behind the hit-and-run incident that killed their mother.
According to the brothers, their mother was taking her daily morning walk when she was rammed from behind by an unknown vehicle in the 6.30am incident.
"I was at work in Butterworth when I received a call from our neighbour at 6.50am informing me about the incident," Kwong Chun said, adding, "I immediately contacted my brother, Kwong Loon, to check on our mother, only to find her lying lifeless in a drain but no vehicle was spotted at the scene."
It was their mother's routine to have a brisk walk every morning
We are appealing for anyone with information on the incident to assist the police in the investigation.
