World comes crashing down for victim’s pregnant wife
SUNGAI PETANI: She was a little confused when her husband of three months, Mohamad Fandi Rosli, told her he was not going to send her back to Selangor this coming weekend, as he usually did.
Norasikin Abdul Halim, 26, a nurse at Selayang Hospital, did not suspect anything amiss until she received a phone call yesterday morning, informing her that Fandi was killed in an accident in Permatang Pauh, near Bukit Mertajam.
She felt as if her world came crumbling down.
Norashikin is said to be pregnant with their first child.
“I was supposed to come back here this Thursday (tomorrow) and usually, my husband would send me back to Selayang.
“However, two days ago, he told me that he had booked a flight ticket for me from Kuala Lumpur to Sungai Petani.
“He told me to arrange for my trip back to Kuala Lumpur. When I asked him why he asked me to do so, he just told me that he could not send me, without explaining why,” she said in between sobs at Fandi’s parents’ home in Taman Sri Pinang here.
Norashikin, who arrived at the house at 3pm, fainted several times upon seeing her husband’s body.
Fandi’s remains were taken to the Kampung Pokok Assam Cemetery for burial at 6pm yesterday.
His death was a great loss to his parents, Rosli Lin, 57, and Noor Suraini Ismail, 47, as he was their only son.
The couple have a second child, Nurfadilah, 25.
Rosli said he accepted Fandi’s death as God’s will, but added that his family hoped that police would investigate the case.
“I can accept his death but I am devastated by the irresponsible act of the other driver, who caused the fatal accident by driving against traffic flow.
“I want justice for my family and my daughter-in-law,” he said, adding that the family was contemplating taking legal action against the driver who caused the accident.
Rosli said Fandi, who worked at a factory in Seberang Jaya, was travelling home after completing his shift at 7am yesterday.
“He was my only son. He was a good son.
“He did not do anything wrong. He did not deserve to die in such a horrible way due to someone else’s negligence.”
Rosli said his heart crushed every time he watched the video clip of the car travelling in the opposite direction along the North-South Expressway seconds before it rammed into Fandi’s car.
