New Straits Times - - NEWS / NATION -

KUALA LUMPUR: The sib­ling of a man wanted in con­nec­tion with the death of his 3-year-old step­son said the sus­pect will turn him­self in soon.

Khairul Mustaffa Khairud­din, 30, said his brother, Khairul Izaini, 31, would make the right de­ci­sion and surrender him­self to the po­lice.

“I know him. My in­stincts say he will surrender to the po­lice to­day or to­mor­row,” he told the New Straits Times Press yes­ter­day.

“Abang will not run away. He will re­turn home and surrender to the au­thor­i­ties when the time comes. I am try­ing to lo­cate him even though it could be dan­ger­ous. My step­nephew de­serves jus­tice.”

The vic­tim, he said, was buried at the Jalan Kuari Mus­lim ceme­tery in Cheras about 5pm on Fri­day.

It was re­ported that he died at Am­pang Hospi­tal here on Thurs­day while be­ing treated for se­vere in­juries. His in­juries in­cluded a frac­tured skull and bruises on the body, be­lieved to have been in­flicted by his step­fa­ther.

His mother and step­fa­ther fled af­ter send­ing him to the hospi­tal.

Po­lice are look­ing for No­raini Samian, 20, and Khairul Izaini to as­sist in­ves­ti­ga­tion.
