HER pregnant granddaughter went out one night to get a massage as she often has body aches.
“I did not think that she would not return home and only her lifeless body would be found,” said Zakiah Sulong, 68, reported Berita Harian.
Her 26-year-old entrepreneur granddaughter was found dead inside her car on Saturday with a gunshot wound to the abdomen.
Police earlier said a 40-year-old man was detained in Pasir Mas to facilitate investigations under Section 302 of the Penal Code.
Zawiah said her granddaughter, who was seven months’ pregnant, left the house in Pasir Mas, Kelantan at 8pm.
She became alarmed when there was still no sign of her the next day, so she started looking for her.
“I also contacted her mother who lives in Kampung Bechah Kelubi, Bukit Panau, but I was told that she wasn’t there.”
Soon, a relative told Zawiah that her granddaughter’s car had been left by the roadside.
“I rushed there and was shocked to find policemen and other people at the scene,” she said.
Zawiah, upon seeing the lifeless body, recited a long prayer.
She said her granddaughter, who had three children aged between three and 10, had never spoken of having any trouble with anyone.
“I have accepted what has happened, but I have to be strong to continue to care for her children,” she added.
> Actress Jasmin Abdul Hamid has appealed to social media users to stop their unkind comments about her husband being the cause of her heart attack, Kosmo! reported in its online edition.
“Stop libelling me and my husband. It is better for you to stab me than to libel me like this,” said Jasmin, 48.
Apparently, some online commentators had passed remarks that her heart attack was a consequence of her marrying a younger man.
Her husband Nazmir Abd Rahim, who is also her manager, is 12 years younger. The couple married last year.
Jasmin, who appeared in the drama series 7 Hari Mencintaiku 3, was admitted to Hospital Sungai Buloh after suffering a heart attack on Tuesday.
