JOHOR BARU: Student Noor Haikal Ahmad Zaini was on his way to school when he saw something he would never forget – his neighbour dragging his wife out the front door in Kampung Bakar Batu here.

The 14-year-old boy was riding pillion on his brother’s motorcycle around noon yesterday when he encountered the horrible episode.

“I first saw the wife being dragged out by the man holding a cleaver. She was not making any sound at the time.

“Then I saw the man entering the house and coming out carrying his crying baby.

“We were scared. I told my brother to speed off as I felt we should not interfere in other people’s business,” said the SMK Sri Tebrau student at the murder scene of 26-year-old Hajar Nursyahirin Rosman and her two-month-old baby.

Noor Haikal’s father Ahmad Zaini Ismail, 39, who owns a vehicle workshop opposite the suspect’s house, said he was busy working when he heard a male voice shouting “kau apa hal” but declined to elaborate further.

“I last saw the suspect yesterday while repairing his motorcycle and we had a chat.

“He was carrying his baby and seemed normal,” he added.

Another neighbour, Rosimawati Ramli, 36, said the couple and their family members were friendly but kept mostly to themselves.

“They seldom mingled in the neighbourhood but usually waved whenever we saw each other,” she said, adding the suspect suddenly decided to treat the other patrons at her food stall early yesterday.

“After he finished his meal, he stood up and spent about RM20 to pay for all my other customers who had nasi lemak and lontong,” she added.

Hours later, he was arrested, stark naked, while riding his motorcycle.
