A Nigerian man has today been remanded for seven days to assist in the murder investigation of Serdang Hospital nursing sister Siti Kharina Mohd Khairuddin, 40, who was found dead in a condominium in Cyberjaya on Wednesday.
Magistrate A Akhiruddin of the Sepang magistrate’s court issued the remand order at about 11am on Friday (May 17), following the arrest of the 30-year-old man at Cheras Sentral mall, Kuala Lumpur, yesterday.
The suspect, who will be remanded until Thursday (May 23), was picked up following the arrests of a 35-year-old Nigerian woman and a 38-year-old Pakistani man yesterday in Cheras and Setapak respectively. The duo was remanded also for seven days from yesterday, for the same case.
Residents of the condominium where Siti Kharina lived have described her as a friendly and generous person.
A resident who declined to be named said Siti Kharina, who rented a unit at the condominium, was always friendly and greeted the other residents.
“I always saw her speaking with the people around here, she was also friendly with the security guards,” he said.
Another resident said Siti Kharina was often seen handing out food to the security guards at the condominium.
Siti Kharina was buried at the Kampung Tengah Muslim Cemetery, Seri Menanti, last night at 9pm.
Prior to that, her remains arrived at her village in Kampung Tengah at 6.15pm.
It was then taken into the house to be viewed for the last time by family members, relatives, friends and neighbours.
Kuala Pilah Member of Parliament and Communications and Multimedia Deputy Minister Eddin Syazlee Shith was among 100 people who turned up to pay their final respects.
The late Siti Kharina left behind a husband and three children who were staying in Kampung Tengah.
She was a mother to three daughters – a 14-year-old and a pair of 10-year-old twins.
