KLANG: A couple's plan to get married in February was dashed when they were killed in a hit-and-run accident in Jalan Pelabuhan Barat here, early Thursday.

Arifshah Lingam Munandy, 39, and his girlfriend, Nor Aishah Abdullah, 35, died on the spot in 4.40am incident due to head injuries.

Nor Aishah's five-year-old son, who was also riding pillion, sustained minor injuries and was treated at Tengku Ampuan Rahimah Hospital.

The couple and the boy were heading towards Shah Alam when their motorcycle was hit from the rear by a hit-and-run motorist, Klang Selatan police chief ACP Alzafny Ahmad said in a statement.

Arifshah Linggam's sister, M. Parameswary, 40, said her brother converted to Islam two years ago and had planned to marry Nor Aishah in early February.

The boy is Nor Aishah's son from her previous marriage, she said.

"Nor Aishah's house was near my brother's house in Pandamaran. When the incident occurred, they were on their way to work in Bandar Puteri.

"My sister is babysitting the boy when they go to work," she said at the hospital.

Parameswary appealed to witnesses to come forward and assist the police in the investigation. - Bernama
