A MAN’S body was dragged for more than 100m along the North-South Expressway after a driver said he did not realise the object he ran over was a body.

According to Harian Metro, the driver of a Volkswagen claimed that he did not know the object, which was lying on the right most lane of the highway, was a body.

Hulu Selangor OCPD R. Supramaniam said the motorist aged 33, who was heading to Ipoh, then stopped his vehicle on the emergency lane.

“He was shocked and horrified to find a man’s body stuck under his car,” he said, adding that the incident took place at about 3am on Saturday.

Supramaniam said the victim, M. Nithian, 29, died on the spot due to his severe injuries.

The body was sent to the Kuala Kubu Baru hospital for a post-mortem.

> “Over or not?” This is the question that pops up in the heads of those eager to know about the relationship status between celebrities Fathia Latif and Aiman Hakim Redza.

Also according to Harian Metro, the couple had recently made public that their romance was over.

However, the two were said to have met up recently.

“It could be that Aiman wants to comfort Fathia and convince her to reconcile. Or perhaps they met to resolve outstanding issues to ensure nothing could be held against them in future,” said a source.

The source had tried asking the pair separately but both refused to comment, with Aiman insisting in a recent interview with the paper that he would not entertain personal questions.

> A family of 10 is perplexed over 20 fires that have mysteriously occurred in their home in the last three months.

Berita Harian reported that the family in Kuala Terengganu had already faced losses amounting to thousands of ringgit following the incidents.

Rafeah Sudin, 43, said it all started when the walls in the house suddenly caught fire one evening last November.

An electrical glitch was suspected at first but the wiring was not the cause of the problem.

“We really did not suspect anything initially as we have been living in this house for over eight years and never faced ‘disturbances’ of this kind. But in the past three months, we have been living in fear because of the 20 incidents where three motorcycles and a significant amount of property had been damaged,” said Rafeah.

“My husband and I have done everything we could and we even approached witchdoctors, who claimed the house is being controlled by ‘something’.

“We are mentally and physically exhausted ... we are moving out of here,” said the mother of eight.
