SHAH ALAM: The remains of the younger sister of the Sultan of Selangor, Tengku Puteri Sofiah Sultan Salahuddin Abdul Aziz Shah, 68, were buried at the Shah Alam Royal Mausoleum in Seksyen 5 here.

The remains were prepared and accorded funeral prayers led by Deputy Mufti of Selangor Dr Anhar Opir at Masjid Istana Diraja, Klang.

Tengku Puteri Sofiah’s remains were then taken by hearse to the royal mausoleum and carried by pallbearers to their final resting place at 11am yesterday.

Accompanying the remains were Selangor Ruler Sultan Sharafuddin Idris Shah, Tengku Permaisuri Selangor Tengku Permaisuri Norashikin and Raja Muda Selangor Tengku Amir Shah.

Also present were Selangor Mentri Besar Datuk Seri Mohamad Azmin Ali and his wife Datin Seri Shamsidar Taharin.

Tengku Puteri Sofiah’s eldest son, Raja Jasril Ashrull Raja Jaafar, 37, said his mother had been receiving treatment at Tengku Ampuan Rahimah Hospital in Klang for six months.

“On Thursday, my mum suddenly asked to be moved out of the intensive care unit ward to the ordinary ward where she died at 3.10pm,” he said.
