The death penalty was carried out at the Sungai Buloh Prison in Selangor. His body was returned to his hometown of Kampung Ngor near here and buried after asar prayers at about 5.30pm.

“We met as a family last night (Thursday) and even managed to eat together,” she said. 

Mohd Amin’s last words to his children were to study hard and become religious teachers, she said. 

Mohd Amin was supposed to be hanged last week together with three others – Zahid Muslim, Jemari Jusoh and Jamaludin Darus – but the prison authorities deferred his execution, pending the return of his mother Aminah Abdullah, 62, who was in Mecca to perform the umrah (pilgrimage).
