COSTLY DECISION TO CROSS RAILWAY TRACK
Brothers hit by train on the way home from grocery shop
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.
