New Straits Times - - News - HARIZ MOHD AND MASRIWANIE MUHAMADING SHAH ALAM news@nst.com.my

NOR­MALLY, they would ride their mo­tor­cy­cle to go to the nearby gro­cery shop, but on Thurs­day, brothers Sabi­ran Musa, 40, and Nizam Rizuan Musa, 36, de­cided to cross a rail­way track in­stead.

About 10 min­utes later, the duo, who were on their way home, were killed when they were run over by a KTM Komuter train about 50m to 60m from their home.

Their fa­ther, Musa Yahya, 75, said his sons were re­turn­ing home from the nearby gro­cery shop when the in­ci­dent took place.

“It was driz­zling. At 5.30pm, the two de­cided to go to the shop to buy food.

“Usu­ally, they will ride their mo­tor­cy­cle as it is a short trip, but that evening, they de­cided to cross the rail­way track.”

Musa said about 10 min­utes later, two vil­lagers in­formed him that two men had been hit by a Komuter train.

“The vil­lagers could not recog­nise the bod­ies.

“Out of cu­rios­ity, my third son (Nizam’s twin brother) and I went to the scene. I recog­nised my sons from the shirts they were wear­ing.

“Their bod­ies were in­tact, but they could have suf­fered in­ter­nal frac­tures. They were ly­ing about 40m from each other.”

Shah Alam district po­lice chief As­sis­tant Com­mis­sioner Shafien Ma­mat said the case was clas­si­fied as sud­den death. The vic­tims were buried at the Mus­lim ceme­tery in Kam­pung Padang Jawa yes­ter­day.
