Woman In Terengganu Stabbed To Death In Front Of Bedridden Mother During Robbery
A woman in Terengganu was recently stabbed to death during a robbery at her home
During the robbery, Siti Nur Surya was taking care of her mother who was bedridden due to brain cancer
The victim's brother explained to Harian Metro that his sister was brutally murdered with stab wounds on her body and a severed wrist.
He said, "During the incident, only our mother was home. Our bedridden mother could only watch because she has brain cancer."
The victim's father, Ismail Muda, told Bernama that Siti Nur Surya was supposed to pick up her sister from school. However, when she did not show up, her 15-year-old sister walked home herself.
He said, "Usually, Siti Nur Surya would fetch her sister from school but today she did not do so and also did not answer the phone until my youngest child had to walk home. Upon reaching home, she called me to inform that her sister was lying in the living room, covered in blood."
Police found that the robber stole hundreds of ringgit, two handbags, and two mobile phones
State Criminal Investigation Department chief ACP Mohd Marzukhi Mohd Mokhtar told Malay Mail that the victim's mother was not injured.
He added that the crime may have been committed by an individual known to the victim, but the motive and cause of the incident are still under investigation.
The case is being investigated under Section 302 of the Penal Code for murder and the body has been taken to Sultanah Nur Zahirah Hospital.
