Cheong Mei Keun, wife of the banker who was shot to death in Jalan Ceylon, was taken to claim the body of her husband Hussain Ahmad Najadi at Hospital Kuala Lumpur.
Cheong, who was on wheelchair was being accompanied by 10 relatives and friends. She broke down when she went to identify her husband’s body at the morgue.
His body was then taken to the Jalan Duta Mosque for prayers before he was laid to rest at the Bukit Kiara Muslim cemetery.
Meanwhile, Najadi’s son, Pascal, who is in Moscow, has been advised from returning to Malaysia for security reasons. He was informed by police that his father’s death could be the result of a property deal that went sour.
