KUALA LUMPUR: The mother of a 11-year-old girl whose death due to physical and sexual abuse shocked the country today said she will not rest until the authorities bring those behind a savage crime to face justice.
Noraihan Ab Aziz, 22, the mother of Nur Muazara Ulfa Mohammad Zainal, said that what had happened to her was kept for the rest of her life.
"Until Zarin's case is resolved, until a criminal is punished, I will not calm down," Noraihan said.
Nur Muazara died on Friday after spending two days at the Serdang Hospital in a critical condition.
It was believed that he physically and sexually abused his husband's husband.
"My heart is troubled when I look at Zara's damaged heart, I leave it to the police to investigate and take appropriate action against the perpetrators," said Noraihan, who works at a factory in Bandar Baru Bangi.
She and her husband Muhammad Zainal Abduk Rahaman (27) and their son Muhammad Alif Zamani (4) are now in their hometown Rantau Panjang, Kelantan, where they buried Zara yesterday.
Yesterday Noraihan expressed her grief over Facebook: "You are in peace there, my dear … Wait for your mother in the sky …"
She shared several photos of Zara, including a baby funeral.
Recalling a grim incident, Noraihan said she contacted Serdang Hospital on Wednesday night, noting that her daughter was in critical condition after her husband and her husband had been brought there.
"The manager called me five times, but my phone was out of coverage at that time.
"After I came to the hospital, I found guards to feel very sorry, but her husband was calm as if nothing had happened," she said.
According to Noraihan, two months ago she met a babysitter when she posted her status on Facebook in a search for caregivers.
In the end, the expert offered a day service.
"I went to see her and from the way she spoke to me, I did not see anything suspicious. However, at that time, the husband of the Babysitter and the 20-month-old son were not at home," she said.
Noraihan hopes that the temptation will serve her as a lesson to other parents, so they are more attentive in choosing their baby's little things.
