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.
