‘Sell my bike, I don’t use it any­more’

New Straits Times - - News -

RAWANG: “Mak, nanti basikal Ai­man boleh jual dah. Ai­man dah tak pakai dah.” (Mum, you can sell my bi­cy­cle. I don’t use it any­more.)

Th­ese were the last words of Muham­mad Ai­man Ka­marul, 12, to his mother be­fore he left home on Fri­day af­ter­noon.

His un­cle, Mohd Fad­hil Mus­sana, 33, said he was close to tears when his sis­ter told him about the in­ci­dent.

“His words have a dif­fer­ent mean­ing for us now,” said Fad­hil, who drove here from Te­mer­loh early yes­ter­day morn­ing af­ter re­ceiv­ing news about his nephew.

He said Ai­man loved his bi­cy­cle and would not go any­where with­out it.

“But Fri­day was unusual be­cause he left with­out his bi­cy­cle.

“His mum thought maybe it was be­cause none of the other boys brought theirs.”

Fad­hil de­scribed Ai­man as a very obe­di­ent boy who would vol­un­teer to do house chores.

“I remember the last time I saw him. It was at a rel­a­tive’s wed­ding at our kam­pung on Feb 26. He was fas­ci­nated by the vac­uum cleaner that he asked to vac­uum the car­pet. He did a great job.”

Fad­hil spoke to the New Sun­day Times on be­half of Ai­man’s mother, who was too dis­traught.

He said his sis­ter could not bring her­self to visit the search and res­cue cen­tre, which was near where the tragedy took place.

“She also has six other chil­dren to take care of.”

Ai­man and Mohd Ikhwan Mohd Ridzuan are miss­ing af­ter Fri­day’s fish­ing tragedy in Kam­pung Timah SKC here.
