Mother of brothers in poisoned crackers case says she cannot bear to look at comatose son

GEORGE TOWN: The mother of the two brothers who ate crackers laced with rat poison cannot bear to see the condition of her younger son.

Nurain Hasnorizal, 25, said she had come to terms with the death of her eldest child, Muhammad Akil Syauqi Nur Sufian, three, who passed away at 8.40am on Wednesday (July 10).

However, she told reporters that she could not bear to see her second child, Muhammad Luth Syauqi, aged two, who is still in a coma and receiving treatment at the Penang Hospital's paediatric intensive care unit.

"He will be all alone after his brother's death. The two of them were very close," she said.

She said whenever the younger son did not want to go out with the family, his older brother would always change his mind and bring him along.

"Now, the younger one is still in a coma, he is suffering. It's very sad, but I am resigned to it," she said tearfully when met at the Penang Hospital Forensic Department compound here on Wednesday, according to Sinar Harian.

According to Nurain, she is still waiting to hear from the specialist doctor on the condition of her second child.

She said her eldest child, Muhammad Akil, was a very affectionate boy.

"Previously, when I had to go to work, he would cry, but this time he didn't. He just waved and said 'bye bye' while holding his younger brother," she said.
