KOTA TINGGI – Johor Permaisuri Raja Zarith Sofiah Sultan Idris Shah visited the grave of the schoolboy who died following alleged physical abuse at a religious school here.
She visited Mohamad Thaqif Amin Mohd Gaddafi’s grave in Felda Bukit Aping Timur at around 3.30pm on Friday.
Raja Zarith, in a white baju kurung and white tudung, was accompanied by the boy’s mother, Felda Wani Ahmad as they recited prayers in front of the tomb.
Also present were Kota Tinggi district officer Dr Badrul Hisham Kassim and Kota Tinggi kadi Suhaimi Rebu who led the prayers.
Thaqif was hospitalised after allegedly being abused by an assistant warden at the school, which resulted in a bacterial infection.
