Khairman’s wife, Elina Sabari, wrote on Facebook that her husband’s body will return to their home at noon today:

“We will leave for Muslim cemetery (pusara) after Zuhur prayers, at abt 2.30pm,
“Please forgive any of his transgressions against you in this world, and if he has any debts still outstanding, please approach me personally. We pray that Allah (SWT) will shower His mercy on this man, and grant him the highest level of Paradise – Jannat Ul-Firdaus – and give his family patience in this difficult time.”

  1. I dun c why drivers DELIVERATELY going agst the traffic shldnt be given death penalty when the victims r dead.
    It may be sheer carelessness but why shld pple die & the driver get away lightly?

  2. Current circulate video is not enough to justify the accident. I’m sure someone from other vehicles will have better clips. Hope he/she can come forward with the clips. Like someone had mentioned that the car might be trying to sway away from a truck that cut in its way

  3. Wrong info.. car was going on the correction on the opposite road.. but hit the kerb and flipped over to this side.. pls view video again and not to circulate wrong information. Tks.
