'Ijat can visit his wife's grave anytime'

KANGAR: KANGAR: The family of a woman who was allegedly murdered by her husband say he is welcome to visit her grave anytime.

Safsufarnisya Salleh's brother-in-law Mohd Hasanudin Hassan, 42, who spoke on behalf of the family, said they had no issue in fulfilling the accused's plea.

"Everyone in the family holds no grudges against him. We never blamed him for what happened.

"Thus, we have no issue fulfilling his plea to visit Shafsufarnisya's grave," he said when contacted today.

Yesterday, Mohamad Nizarman Hassim, 27, made an emotional plea at the Kangar Magistrate's Court to visit his late wife's grave.

The Lance corporal made the plea to the court's policeman as he was led out of the stand moments after being charged with her murder.

It was reported earlier that Nizarman said he understood the charge but no plea was recorded.

The accused was charged with killing his wife, Safsufarnisya, 26, in their home in Kampung Bendang Baru, Simpang Empat, between 6.45am and 8.50am on March 5.

The court subsequently granted the prosecution's request to send the accused for a month-long psychiatric evaluation at a mental hospital.

Commenting further, Hasanudin said the accused had contacted the family recently before he was charged.

He described the accused as a responsible husband and had a strong bond with the family.

Hence, Hasanudin said he was upset when outsiders made all sorts of speculations and spoke evil of Nizarman.

He added that following the incident, he brought his parents in law, Salleh Eizan, 61 and Che Mas Taha, 63, to live with him in Ipoh as they felt lonely following Safsufarnisya's passing and Nizarman's arrest.

"We look forward to visiting him at Tanjong Rambutan Hospital soon as it is located near my place," he said.

It was reported that the accused, attached to the state police headquarters' Narcotics Investigation Division shot dead his wife, Safsufarnisya, who was five-months pregnant with their first child.

The incident occurred after the accused, who hails from Setiu, Terengganu, returned home after finishing his shift.

It was reported that the accused had suddenly whipped out his police-issued Walther P99 pistol and fired more than five shots at his wife at close range, killing the victim instantly.
