I’m sure many of us used to get into fights with our siblings, and sometimes they annoy you to the point of no return. But it’s always good to exercise caution and restraint, before something like this happens…
A 16-year-old boy was killed after being hit by a knife believed to have been thrown by his 18-year-old sister during a spat.
The incident happened in Ulu Pulai, Ulu Choh, near Iskandar Puteri yesterday.
Iskandar Puteri district police chief ACP Rahmat Ariffin said police received a report about the incident at 2.15pm.
According to their mother, the victim and his sister were fighting over a seat in the car on their way home from school.
“The victim’s sister admitted to having thrown a knife at the victim after being teased as they entered the house,” he told Bernama.
The boy was confirmed dead at 2.30pm and a post-mortem examination would be conducted at the Sultanah Aminah Hospital.
He said the victim’s sister had been detained and the case was being investigated under Section 302 of the Penal Code. She will be remanded until 25 October.
According to NST, the siblings were a close pair and grew up in a loving home. The incident was said to have shocked not just family members and relatives but also villagers who knew the 18-year-old and her younger brother.
“The siblings were taught to obey the teaching of their religion and not skip their prayers. Both always did well in school. That is why the news shocked us,” an anonymous family member said.
In regards to the parents, they are “extremely sad and have not left the house since the incident happened after going viral on social media,” he said.
