Pasir Mas district police chief Abdullah Mohammad Piah revealed that her stomach was punctured due to the impact of the accident, causing the fetus to come out of her body.

The victim's father, Jaafar Ibrahim, did not even know that Syafiqah was pregnant

"This morning at 8am, we were shocked to learn about the accident. Syafiqah has been married for almost a year, but she never told the family about her pregnancy," Jaafar Ibrahim said, according to Sinar Harian.

He said that he last saw his daughter, a final year engineering student at Politeknik Kota Bharu (PKB), on Sunday.

The 63-year-old did not know where the couple was going before they met with the accident.

The accident occurred when the Myvi driver tried to overtake another vehicle but collided with the motorcycle instead

The couple was driving towards Rantau Panjang, while the Myvi driver was driving in the opposite direction.

The driver suffered serious injuries and is currently receiving treatment.
