KLANG: L/Kpl Nor Hazani Harun was shocked to receive a call yesterday morning informing her that her husband was seriously injured after being attacked during a routine patrol.
“The only thing I knew at that point was that he was seriously injured and was at the Intensive Care Unit of Hospital Tengku Ampuan Rahimah,” said the mother of two who is attached to the Tumpat district police headquarters in Kelantan.
Her husband Kpl Mohd Aidil Mustafa was slashed together with his colleague, Kpl Raja Aizam Raja Mohd, in a scuffle with a group of illegal immigrants at about 5am in Klang yesterday.
Kpl Raja Aizam succumbed to his injuries. Kpl Mohd Aidil was slashed on his face and head.
L/Kpl Nor Hazani, 27, said she caught the earliest available flight from Kota Baru and arrived in Klang from Subang Airport at about 11.15am.
“I did not know what to think and cried all the way during the flight,” L/Kpl Nor Hazani said, adding that their son and daughter, aged three and one, were being taken care by her parents in Temerloh, Pahang.
L/Kpl Nor Hazani said she was unsure when she would be going back to work as her priority was to be with her husband while he recuperated.
“He is still very traumatised and I need to be with him,” she said.
L/Kpl Nor Hazani expressed sorrow at the death of Kpl Raja Aizam.
Kpl Raja Aizam was buried at the Kampung Sayong Lembah Muslim cemetery in Kuala Kangsar yesterday.
His brother-in-law Mohd Shaari Nordin, 68, from Taiping, said they last met here last month.
“He came back often to visit his mother,” he added.
Kpl Raja Aizam leaves behind his 52-year-old wife Norsalmah Nordin and four children.
