The friends, including Eja or Siti Shahrizah Saifuddin, were just leaving after visiting with Noryn when they were waylaid by four men with parang.

“I thought there was an accident but when I came out again, I saw my friends being robbed by four men with parang,” said the wife of Kuala Terengganu MP Datuk Raja Kamarul Bahrin Shah Raja Ahmad.
